Short description: The challenge is to identify operating battery storage facilities (private & commercial) that should be connected to form a virtual power plants. Battery storage is mostly used for tasks such as peak load capping or load distribution. Combined use of battery storage is needed.
Market potential: Other usage: Integration of commercial assets (consumption, production and storage facilities) and utilities (district heating plant, sewage treatment plant) for further stabilisation of power grid.
Timing: Results are needed as soon as possible to engage with potential users/customers and to spread the word about the system. The challenge can start immediately.
Desired result: The aim is to identify battery storage facilities in operation. These are to be networked into a virtual power plants and used on exclusive energy markets.
Information on challenge owner: Micro SME (< 10 staff). Market presence of challenge owner: Active in one country. Keywords: Virtual Powerplant; Battery Storage System; Decentralized Energy Supply; Blackout Prevention; Frequency Regulation
