Microgrids and virtual power plants

November 3, 2020

Microgrids and virtual power plants (VPPs) are options for utilities, their customers, and sometimes third-party participants to optimise the local or system conditions, including for reliability, resiliency, and economy. A micro-grid is a miniature model of a complete grid system where you have a form of electricity generation, storage, distribution, and consumption, all within clearly specified electrical boundaries. Virtual power plants can be created using software to control and optimise a network of generation and demand side storage. Both are fundamental to managing a diverse portfolio of generation assets.
