Virtual Power Plant Industry Expand Their Businesses with New Investments

Brooklyn, NY — 02/14/2018 — With energy needs of users changing dynamically, energy production has also increased manifold over the past few decades. This, however, is not the end. While equipping power grids with smart devices has helped to dish out optimal demand and supply balance between the consumers and utility providers, efficient energy distribution needs still remains a daunting task. Virtual power plants have been making strides in this space serving to network distributed energy resources.'s now features a market study on the global virtual power plant market that offers a comprehensive evaluation of growth trends and demand drivers in the said market. The report is, titled “Global Virtual Power Plant (VPP) Market Size, Status and Forecast 2022.”

A virtual power plant refers to a network of cloud-based heterogeneous power plant that combines the power generating and distribution capacities of participating units. This serves the purpose of enhancing power generation along with facilitating trading or selling power in open markets. A virtual power plant comprises medium-scale power generating units, which include wind farms, combined heat and power units, solar parks, and flexible power consumers and batteries.

While the sources of a virtual power plant remain independent in their operation and ownership, they often form a group of dispatch able and non-dispatch able systems that are controlled by a central authority. The aim of a virtual power plant is to reduce the load on the grid by smart distribution of power generated by individual units during peak load periods. In addition, the combined power generation and power consumption of units in the virtual power plant network is traded on the energy exchange.

A virtual power plant comprises of a central IT control system and distributed energy sources such as solar, wind, biomass units, and hydropower along with flexible power consumers. The participating units are networked through a remote control by means of which data transfer is established between the central control system and partaking units. Consequently, the central control system can observe, forecast, and dispatch the networked units.
