Use your Power to Stabilize the Grid
The increased volatile feed-in of renewable energies brought a challenge to managing power grids: a stronger fluctuating grid frequency. These fluctuations need to be minimized in order to keep the grid stable. Aggregated in a Virtual Power Plant (VPP), distributed assets can play a vital role in levelling out these fluctuations. Next Kraftwerke networks small-scale producers, storage units and C&I-consumers in its VPP and thereby provides access to profitable balancing energy markets.

Since the first minute, working with Next Kraftwerke has been a close cooperation with a lot of valuable information. From our perspective, this is an excellent business relationship.
Wasserkraftwerke Murg Breitwies Schlechtau GmbH & Co. KG
The advantages of hydroelectric power have always been predictability, controllability, and low costs when compared to other energy sources. This allows us to contribute to the energy transition and help stabilize the grid.
Technicial manager LWL Dortmund
Being part of the Virtual Power Plant provides a source of additional revenue where there are usually only additional costs.
Ökowind GmbH, Wasserkraftanlage Neubruck
It was important to us that we could rely on different marketing options in order to achieve the best possible price for our electricity production.
Holzwerke Weinzierl GmbH
Of course, we have an interest in operating our wood-fired power plants with optimum economic efficiency.
KBB Biogas, Kirchlinteln
When the contract was signed, we were able to decide for ourselves how far the CHP unit could be reduced. So far, every call-off has gone smoothly
CEO Stadtwerk Haßfurt
With the Virtual Power Plant, we can produce hydrogen cheaply using energy from a nearby wind farm and at the same time supply secondary reserve to the Transmission System Operator.
