Power Trading Connection Customer access Data Analysis & Predictions Revenues
Power Trading

  1. We connect your plant to the virtual power plant.
  2. We sell your wind power on the European electricity exchanges.
  3. You receive the electricity exchange revenues and the proceeds from the sale of your guarantees of origin and your green electricity certificates.
Connection

We establish a mobile data connection that either uses the protocol interface present in your unit or our own protocol interface, the Next Box. In this way, we integrate your installation into our virtual power plant. The data is transmitted via a reliable and certified mobile data exchange infrastructure, using a VPN (Virtual Private Network) connection with encryption according to IEC 60870-5-104 or Modbus TCP protocols.
Customer access

You can view and manage the status of your wind power plant in our online customer area "My Power Plant". Here you can manage your plants, edit your data, and download invoices. In addition, you can identify offline or maintenance periods for your asset. This keeps us informed of how long your wind power plant is not available in the Virtual Power Plant. 'My Power Plant' can be accessed on a desktop computer, or using our Apple or Android app.
Data Analysis & Predictions

Your generated power is traded on the power exchanges by our skilled team of analysts and traders. The data from our virtual power plant is essential for this: real-time feed-in and feed-out data from thousands of installations - including yours - form the basis for accurate, powerful forecasts. We also continuously update market data from various trading centres, as well as the results of our own meteorological analyses. All these measurements together enable us to trade renewable electricity above the market average and thus support the market integration of decentralised systems.
Revenues

The revenues from your wind energy can be achieved in two ways: Next Kraftwerke pays you the proceeds from the sale of your electricity on the electricity exchange. Our real-time data analysis enables us to trade your electricity with highly qualified forecasts particularly efficiently to your advantage. In addition, you will receive the proceeds from the sale of your guarantees of origin and your green electricity certificates. Important for us and for you: Unlike other competitors at Next Kraftwerke, we and not you bear the balancing energy risks.
