The Virtual Power Plant: A Smarter Way To Manage

Our software platform integrates a wide range of energy technologies and manages them in real time, reacting to grid conditions to increase or reduce electricity consumption or generation. In this way we act like a “real” power plant. Traditional gas turbines crank up and down according to live energy supply and demand data, which helps keep the grid in balance. We do the same thing, but with lots of small domestic devices scattered across the country. This is why we call our platform a Virtual Power Plant (VPP).

Our VPP is currently integrated with a popular electric vehicle charge point, as well as a smart energy diverter which connects to devices such as hot water tanks. More integrations are in the works, including batteries and storage heaters, putting us in a prime position to help people engage with demand-side response.

We are proud to be demonstrating the power of our VPP in the FRED trial. As part of this exciting program we will be working with 250 householders to explore routes to market for domestic DSR – largely focusing on electric vehicle charging.

Who’s the VPP for?

Our software is designed with the end user at heart. We believe anyone with a flexible, energy intensive device like a heater or battery needs to be empowered to use it in an efficient and effective manner – and should be rewarded for the service they are providing the grid.

That’s why we are developing management systems and processes to dovetail with the way people already use their electric vehicles and home heating systems: the goal is a near-invisible system, constantly working to minimise both the economic and environmental impacts of how we use energy.

Who else could the VPP help?
