Understanding and adapting to market dynamics is crucial for new energy suppliers and non-utilities to successfully collaborate with traditional generators, effectively navigate the utility space, participate in trading, and ensure the delivery of optimal energy services.
AutoGrid was recently joined by Swell Energy for a discussion on how virtual power plants (VPPs) are the key to unlocking opportunity in the new energy economy. Discover how these dynamic systems, driven by AI and advanced control, orchestrate and connect diverse fleets of distributed energy assets, fueling generation capacity and growth while enabling consumer electrification.
We explore the promise and mechanics of turnkey VPPs, providing valuable insights for energy retailers, utility professionals, and grid operators. You’ll hear how to harness VPPs to overcome scalability challenges, operational efficiency hurdles, and demand response optimization.
This webinar will help you:
- Understand how VPPs contribute to grid stability, decarbonization goals, and sustainability initiatives.
- Grasp the functions and responsibilities of the system operator for network management and stability in the generation sector.
- Analyze the complexities and opportunities in regulated and deregulated energy markets.
- Examine the impact of emerging technologies, such as EVSEs and big batteries, on the energy market.
- Gain insights from real-world use cases of successful VPP collaborations.
- Discover the advantages of multi-asset VPPs.
