We are Next Kraftwerke

With our team of power traders, IT experts, system engineers and many other energy experts, we have been operating the Next Pool Virtual Power Plant since 2009. By intelligently controlling and coordinating the concentrated energy of the networked plants, we contribute to the stability of the energy system. As an established electricity trading company, we are also active in all major European energy markets. This concentrated know-how has flown into the development of our software solutions NEMOCS and NEXTRA. We look forward to sharing our knowledge with you.

All you have to do is exchange your electricity yourself

Many of our clients want to operate independently in the stock market, but are reluctant to invest in expensive licenses. NEXTRA offers these clients everything they need to conduct their trading activities professionally and under their own responsibility: portfolio overview, analysis and monitoring tools and, of course, 24/7 access to the European energy markets.
