Current standards and technologies in the field of
Virtual Power Plants


As a result of the change in energy policy, the number of decentralised, regenerative energy generation plants in Germany is steadily increasing. But their market integration is a challenge. Virtual power plants that bundle many of these small plants are a solution. The cumulative output makes it possible for them to operate on the market like a large power plant.  Experts from the energy sector discuss the functioning of these solutions and the technical and regulatory framework conditions.
