As the operator of one of Europe's largest Virtual Power Plants (VPP), we network thousands of electricity producers, consumers and storage facilities to build a strong team of renewables. That's why we don't just define ourselves as an electricity trader, an energy service provider, or a cleantech company. First of all, we are "the Power of Many" for the energy transition!
The core idea of our Virtual Power Plant is to create connections. Learn how the VPP provides some fundamental preconditions for the future energy system by aggregating renewables, connecting small plant operators to the markets, and merging a lot of data.
Instead of a few large power plants, numerous small electricity producers will take over our energy supply in the future: from solar and wind power plants to biogas and hydroelectric assets. This multitude of decentralized energy resources (DER) must be intelligently coordinated to ensure a reliable energy supply – that's exactly what our own VPP in Europe is doing.
The Power of Many also includes participation in the electricity markets: Only bundled in the VPP small players reach the necessary size for benefiting from new market opportunities. As a leading electricity trader, we are operating 24/7 on all relevant European electricity markets. Here, we not only prove that renewables are competitive. Together with the participants in the Virtual Power Plant, we also contribute to balancing energy products of grid operators and thus stabilize the power grid.
Electricity traders, IT experts, engineers and energy economists work hand in hand in our company. As a first mover in renewables trading, we are also one of few specialists in short-term trading and a leading renewables trader. To keep it that way, we actively try to push the boundaries based on our insights and expertise. Various research projects and pilots prove this.
We connect thousands of energy-producing and energy-consuming units by utilizing the full potential of digitalization. To successfully manage their power supply and demand, and to subsequently trade power with the highest profitability, we created a control system. This collects and merges data from a variety of sources: operational data from our VPP, current weather and grid data, and live market data. The accumulated data, combined with cutting-edge technology and deep market experience, makes us specialists for day-ahead, intraday and control reserve markets.
With our technology, we unite small decentralized plants, consumers and battery storage into a strong team.
