Dispatch & Optimization
Higher revenues and reduced costs through schedule operation
The volatile feed-in of wind and solar energy has a strong effect on power exchanges: Market prices fluctuate significantly. As an operator of steerable assets, you can take advantage of this. 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.
Our software-solution NEMOCS is a perfect tool for dispatching: It enables you to control a large number of assets and helps you to run optimized schedules exactly. Changes to the operating schedule are possible on short notice.
NEMOCS: Controlling assets based on optimized schedules
Case Study: Price-based control of networked assets
EPEX Spot in Paris is the most important European market for short-term power trading and thus also a central trading place for our VPP. During one day, the electricity price changes 24 times on the day-ahead market and even 96 times in intraday trading. The difference between quarter-hours can be more than 50 euros per megawatt hour. To benefit from these price differences, flexible members of our pool produce or consume electricity when it is most economically viable. The more flexible a participant is, the higher revenues or savings are possible. For this purpose, we continuously optimize the schedules and feed them into the control system. The execution runs fully automatically. Of course, it is possible to intervene in the control system at any time.
