The Software-as-a-Service solution for your Virtual Power Plant

As the operator of one of the largest virtual power plants in Europe, we offer you everything you need to set up your own virtual power plant with our VPP-as-a-Service. Use a control system technology that has proven itself in our daily work and is continuously developed further during ongoing operation.

The software solution for a wide range of application scenarios

With NEMOCS we offer you a complete IT solution for the construction of your own Virtual Power Plant. Our Software-as-a-Service offer is perfectly suited for the networking of decentralized systems. You can monitor and control thousands of units via the control system. This enables you not only to make forecasts for the feed-in of renewable energy sources, but also to compensate for grid fluctuations. Your advantage: With NEMOCS you use a powerful infrastructure that has proven itself in our daily work and into which all ideas that we have developed in practical application with our IT experts and electricity traders have been incorporated.

Plant dispatch: Drive flexible plants according to schedule with NEMOCS as dispatch software - based on current day-ahead or intraday prices. This can significantly increase the revenues of controllable plants.

Control energy: NEMOCS enables you to increase or reduce the power production of networked plants at short notice. This allows you to ensure grid stability with controllable plants and generate additional revenues from PRL (primary control power), SRL (secondary control power) and MRL (minute reserve power).

Feed-in management: In the event of negative electricity prices or imbalances in your portfolio, you can regulate plants down within seconds via the control system.

Features & functions of our VPP solution

Our VPP-as-a-Service NEMOCS is modular and can be configured individually. This creates a customized solution that is based on your requirements and usage scenarios.


Almost all energy sources can be connected to the virtual power plant via standard interfaces.


In the control system, actual performance, storage levels and readiness of the systems are read out and stored live. The data can be visualized according to your own requirements via the graphical user interface.

Data visualization

The graphical user interface of Nemocs offers you a variety of visualization options: for example, by technologies, customer groups or locations.

High-performance data processing

Price signals from the power exchanges, weather data and grid signals are processed in the control system within seconds. On this basis, optimized schedules for the operation of flexible systems can be created.

Optimized plant operation

Based on feed-in and withdrawal data of the networked plants as well as market and weather data, you can create schedules for an electricity price-oriented feed-in and thus optimize the operation of flexible plants and their market revenues.

Fully automated control

From a distance, the central control system switches each individual system to its optimum operating point and ensures compliance with the traded schedules. Individual system restrictions are of course taken into account. Timetables can be adjusted at short notice.

Communication and data flow via the control system

The control system is the technological heart of the virtual power plant. This is where all the information that the systems transmit in real time via M2M communication comes together. Based on this data, you know at all times how much power is available in the Virtual Power Plant. Market and network data are also processed in the control system and converted into individual control commands. For example, flexible systems can be started up and shut down as required. Based on standard interfaces, NEMOCS is open for all technologies and scalable. Data imports and exports from and to other systems are easily possible via the API interface.
