Trading services on different markets
Centrali Next pools distributed renewable generation and flexible demand in a Virtual Power Plant (VPP) - the Next Pool. We trade the VPP's energy and flexibility on the short-term power markets and in future also on the Italian dispatch market. Hereby we generate new income streams for the Next Pool participants while minimizing the risk of blackouts in Italy.

Our Virtual Power Plant for a new energy market

We are in the midst of a huge global transformation of the energy system. Today more capacities for renewable energies are launched than conventional capacities. Are these mostly small decentralized power generators able to replace conventional power plants?

Together they can. Our Virtual Power Plant links decentralized electricity producers and consumers via a central control system in order to reliably coordinate power production and power consumption in the new energy market.
