VPP Software as a Service

NEMOCS is our Platform for your Virtual Power Plant

Managing the shift towards a more distributed energy system based on renewables is an enormous challenge for the energy sector. Numerous distributed energy resources (DERs) need to be perfectly coordinated to provide a reliable supply of energy. Consumption processes should also be intelligently scheduled to ensure that energy supply at any moment meets the energy demand. The Virtual Power Plant (VPP) is a key technology for solving the tasks of this distributed energy world. The VPP not only allows to aggregate thousands of electricity producers, consumers, and storage units. It also allows to bid their power and flexibility into different markets by intelligently controlling their feed-in and consumption.

As the operator of one of the world’s largest VPPs and an experienced energy trader, 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.

Use cases & features

Learn more about our VPP solution

NEMOCS is a modulary designed software as a service solution 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.

VPP software

Aggregation

Using a standard interface, you can connect different assets such as wind, solar, or biomass and controllable loads into the VPP and steer 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 assets. You can see the exact amount of available capacity in your VPP.

We trade the aggregated power on different energy exchange spot markets

Data visualization

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

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

Individual control

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

Communication & data flow

The Structure of NEMOCS

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.
