Live Data

Through our VPP alone, we have access to live feed-in data from more than 10,000 assets, including weather-dependent sources such as wind and solar. A unique benefit, because the more data is used, the more precise is the forecasting.

Accurate Forecasts

Weather data is continually updated from our own meteorological analyses along with market data from several exchanges. The pool grows with every passing trading day. New data is continuously compared against historical values for a steady reduction in forecasting errors.

Intelligent Dispatch

Whether you are selling the power of your individual asset through our VPP or manage a portfolio, our detailed forecasting allows for balancing out any excess or shortfall quantity and help you sell your power to the best possible price.
