Generation / Virtual Power Plants

Generation / Virtual Power Plants

In the context of power, heat, and steam generation using modern power plant technology and renewable energy systems, it is most important to keep track of expenses and revenues at all times to make the best use of the generation plants. To successfully participate in the market, you have to exhaust all possible options and comply with government demands, market requirements, and contractual restrictions. Virtual power plants and participation in the control energy market offer new profitable opportunities.
