NEMOCS 
Our VPP Software 
as a Service

As the operator of one of the world’s largest Virtual Power Plants (VPP) and as an expert in renewable energy trading, we can offer you a customizable VPP as a service solution for building your own VPP. You’ll gain access to the powerful infrastructure, which has proven its value time and again in our daily business.

A VPP Software Solution for Various Business Cases

The Virtual Power Plant (VPP) is a key technology for solving the tasks of a distributed energy world. The VPP not only allows aggregating thousands of electricity producers, consumers, and storage units. It also enables offering their power and flexibility into different markets by intelligently controlling their feed-in and consumption.

Energy trading

With NEMOCS, you can bundle a great amount of different energy sources and thus achieve the necessary size to participate in power and balancing energy markets. Thanks to the live data transmitted from each technical unit to the VPP, you are perfectly equipped for trading renewable energies.

Load management & demand response

C&I-consumers can also be aggregated and controlled via the Virtual Power Plant. This enables you to control electricity consumption based on price signals from the power markets, offer balancing services or control flexible loads.

Balancing services

NEMOCS enables you to increase or reduce the electricity production of steerable assets at short notice. Thus, you can ensure grid stability and achieve additional revenues on the balancing energy markets.

Curtailment

In case of negative electricity prices or imbalances in your portfolio, you can shut down plants within seconds via the control system of the VPP.

Dispatch

Use NEMOCS as a dispatching software for scheduling flexible assets based on current market prices. A price-oriented steering can significantly increase the revenues.

 

Features of Our VPP Software as a Service

NEMOCS is a modulary designed software as a service solution (SaaS) that enables you to connect, monitor, and control distributed power producers, consumers, and storage systems. Thereby, it offers a wide range of business fields to RES portfolio operators, aggregators, utilities, grid operators and energy traders.

Aggregation

Using a standard interface, you can connect different renewable energy assets such as wind, solar, or biomass and controllable loads into the VPP and steer them remotely.

Monitoring

The control system displays and records real-time information on current capacity, storage levels, and standby status of your assets. You can see the exact amount of available capacity.

Data Visualization

The control system of NEMOCS provides several visual interfaces. For example, you can filter by technology type, customer groups, or location.

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 assets.

Optimized Asset Operation

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

Individual Control

The central control system remotely manages each asset and ensures the predetermined schedule is executed respecting individual restrictions. Schedule changes are possible on short notice.

Communication & Data Flow of Our VPP Solution

The control system is the technological core of the Virtual Power Plant. Here, all information from each 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. Market and network data is also processed in the control system and converted to individual operational commands. This allows flexible assets to be, for example, powered up or down as needed. NEMOCS is based on standard interfaces and is therefore scalable and open to all types of technologies. Importing and exporting data to and from other systems is easy with the API.
