VPP Software as a Service

NEMOCS is our platform for your Virtual Power Plant

Converting our energy system to renewables is an enormous challenge for the energy sector: a large number of decentralized units need to be intelligently coordinated to provide a reliable supply of energy. With the help of a Virtual Power Plant (VPP), managing this complex system is possible.

As the operator of one of the largest VPPs in Europe, we can offer you a complete VPP solution for creating your own Virtual Power Plant. NEMOCS is a modulary designed software as a service (SaaS) solution that enables you to connect, monitor and control decentalized power producers, consumers and storage systems. Thereby it offers a wide range of business fields to plant operators, electricity suppliers, grid operators and power traders.

Use cases & features of our VPP solution

Whether you simply want to connect and monitor distributed energy resources (DERs), balance the grid in case of fluctuating feed-in, or trade the aggregated power of your VPP on the electricity markets, NEMOCS offers all the functionality you need to realize your business case in building up a Virtual Power Plant or become a Virtual Utility.

VPP software

Aggregation

Using a standard interface, you can connect different DER assets such as wind, solar or biomass and contollable loads into the VPP and control them remotely. We can network the assets via our Next Box if desired.

Analysis of energy portfolio

Monitoring

The control system displays and records real-time information on current capacity, storage levels, and standby status of your DER assets. By providing you with accurate live data, NEMOCS gives you a strong foundation for reliable forecasting.

We trade the aggregated power on different energy exchange spot markets

Interfaces

To implement ancillary services or curtailment, a direct connection to the system operator can be established via NEMOCS. To embed the VPP into your existing infrastructure, NEMOCS can be linked via APIs or file imports.

With the Next Box we use the full potential of digitalization in the energy sector

High-performance data processing

Price signals from the energy markets and control signals from the system operator are processed in seconds and converted to operational commands for the DER assets. Using API or file exports, the data can later be transferred to your master data, trading, or accounting systems.

Optimized asset operation

Based on input and output data of the DERs in addition to market and weather data, you can execute schedules for peak-load operation, optimize flexible assets and implement demand response solutions.

Fully-automated asset control

The central control system remotely manages each asset at its optimal operating point and ensures the predetermined schedule is executed. Restrictions on individual assets are taken into account. Schedule changes are possible on short notice.

Communication & data flow

The control system is the technological core of the Virtual Power Plant. It is here that all the information from each DER asset comes together in real time using M2M communication. This provides a precise snapshot of your Virtual Power Plant’s available capacity at all times. Our VPP software as a service solution is based on standard interfaces and is therefore scalable and open to all types of technologies.
