Turn your power storage into a source of income

Power storage like batteries are increasingly taking on important tasks in the energy system: For example, they replace internal combustion engines as a drive source or absorb peak loads in order to reduce electricity procurement costs. But with the help of batteries you can not only save money, but also earn money: By providing control energy for the power grid, you can generate additional income - without significant effort or investment costs.

Gain profit from your Energieopslag

Your batteries can help stabilizing the energy grid

By connecting your battery with our Virtual Power Plant you can gain easy and transparent profit from your energy storage: Just contact us via our contact form or give us a call, we will then prepare a non-binding offer from the key data of energy storage. Should our offer convince you, we will sign a contract together and and we add your battery to our virtual power plant. Now we can sell control reserve from your battery to the market and you receive your additional proceeds.

Overview Connection to the control system Your requirements take precedence

  1. Your protocol interface or our remote control unit, the Next Box, connects your battery to the control system of our virtual power plant.
  2. We carry out the necessary test procedure for the control reserve (prequalification) and determine how much reserve power your battery can deliver (control reserve power band).
  3. In the event of fluctuations in the power grid, power is temporarily stored in your battery or called up from it. You will receive a performance price as remuneration.
Connection to the control system

We connect your battery to the virtual power plant via our Next Box interface or the protocol interface that probably exists at your plant. By doing so, your battery and our control system can not only exchange data but also coordinate the reserve energy calls. The basis is our proven and tested mobile data transmission infrastructure. The connection is established via an encrypted VPN (Virtual Private Network) according to IEC 60870-5-104 or Modbus TCP protocols.
Your requirements take precedence

Together with you, we determine which time windows are available for the provision of control reserve. The primary function of your battery capacity (e.g. peak shaving) always takes precedence. Only the so far unused capacities of your battery are considered for delivering control reserve.
