Next Kraftwerke operates a Virtual Power Plant (VPP) that allows to aggregate thousands of electricity producers, consumers, and storage units and to control them according to signals from the system operators. The VPP orchestrates the Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) to provide a cost-efficient and secure electricity supply and guarantee a stable grid. Since 2009, we’ve operated a VPP including ~8,700 energy producers and industrial consumers in various electricity markets (wholesale markets and markets for ancillary services) in 8 European countries (Germany, Belgium, Austria, France, Poland, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Italy). With a connected capacity of ~7,500 MW, the VPP takes a significant role in integrating renewables, mainly 100kW+ PV, 200kW+ wind, biogas plants, hydropower plants, CHPs.

From this experience, we have created the NEMOCS platform to support utilities in other markets. Using it, VPP operators can monitor their portfolio of distributed resources in real ...

From this experience, we have created the NEMOCS platform to support utilities in other markets. Using it, VPP operators can monitor their portfolio of distributed resources in real time, dispatch the pools of generation units as well as single unit, participate at ancillary service markets with a pool of DERs being supported by the advanced analytics developed by Next Kraftwerke. As a result, VPP operator and owners of assets connected to VPP capitalise on supporting energy transition by protecting the grid against the fluctuations associated with volatile energy sources.
The software is already operational, used by us in-house as well as several clients from United Kingdom, Japan and South Korea.
