Utilizing the Flexibility of C&I Consumers
The volatile feed-in of wind and solar energy strongly affects power exchanges. As a consequence of rapidly changing electricity supply, the market prices fluctuate significantly. As an operator of steerable assets, you can take advantage of changing energy prices. By producing energy when prices are high and letting your systems rest when prices are low, you can boost the revenues of your plants and support a sustainable utilization of the grid. In case you are operating flexible consumption assets, the process goes vice verca: The VPP software can dispatch consumption during low price hours.

Optimizing energy costs – active dispatch of consumers
The water company Bodensee-Wasserversorgung is responsible for the water supply of Stuttgart and the whole area of Baden-Wuerttemberg. Therefore, 356,000 cubic metres of water are pumped from lake Constance every day. With an annual consumption of 150 gigawatt hours of electricity, mainly for pumping, the water company was looking for ways to improve energy and cost efficiency and has found these in the flexible electricity tariffs at Next Kraftwerke. A variable electricity supply contract with the product "Best of 96“ makes the price fluctuations on the electricity exchange directly usable. To adjust consumption, the four 8 MW pumps and the two 11 MW pumps can be switched on or off. Next Kraftwerke transmits the electricity prices to the waterworks via the REST-API, while the waterworks sends its timetable back to the VPP via the same route. Through these optimizations in electricity procurement, the water company can save a six-digit amount of electricity costs annually.
