Less-carbon-intensive energy supplies are on the rise to curb CO2 emissions derived from unrestrained energy-consumption habits. The likely availability of new technologies fuelled by these green energy sources, and with the inherent potential of turning users into prosumers, is receiving a boost, too.
Daniele will delve into the leading capabilities of Enel X, key player in the energy sector, to regulate the demand-supply process of a complete fleet of Distributer Energy Resource assets in a community with the holistic approach of the “Virtual Power Plants” (VPPs).
Solar panels, electric vehicles, storage systems and many more assets are aggregated to form a VPP which enables easier enrolment in Demand Response programmes. The virtual brain of this network – the central control system – remotely combines, monitors, coordinates and controls all involved resources from different locations so that the grid remains stable and reliable for all and at all times.
With VPPs gaining ground for their cost-saving and environmental benefits for the grid, consumers, and utilities alike, Enel X is harnessing their two-way flexibility to minimize grid constraint and deliver premium services tailored to the preference of each participant.
Daniele will be sharing insights at Flexcon2020 around the promising potential of energy assets integration for communities.
