What is a Virtual Power Plant?
A Virtual Power Plant (VPP) is an aggregated portfolio of Distributed Energy Resources and Controllable Loads into energy blocks which can be used to participate in Energy Markets and offer Services to the System Operator.
Enable Efficient Economic Participation in Energy Market
Virtual Power Plants enable Utilities to access more resources by "monetizing" customer owned or third-party Distributed Energy Resources and Load Flexibility. The Utility could take advantage of these resources to defer uneconomic investments or relieve capacity constraints.
- VPP can use a standard interface (Open ADR) for easy interaction.
- Reduce or delay capital investments in energy distribution or supply assets.
