What is a Virtual Power Plant (VPP)?

A VPP is an aggregated network of DERs that can be remotely controlled and operated to balance the supply and demand of electricity on the grid. A VPP combines devices that store, generate, and shift electricity to help meet peak demand in place of a conventional power plant.

The Ageing Coal Generation Fleet Retires in Australia

Australia has one of the highest penetration of distributed energy resources in the world. Despite this proliferation, regulatory and commercial barriers exist in delivering VPPs at scale, especially in the Commercial and Industrial sector. The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) recognizes the broad role the Commercial and Industrial sites can play in accelerating towards net zero.
