Energy communities supporting the energy transition
Interreg NWE project “community based Virtual Power Plant”
WEBINAR | Friday 19th June 2020 | 10:00 – 11:30 (CEST)
The European energy system is changing rapidly. Decentralization, democratization and RES penetration are offer new socio-technical opportunities. Also roles are changing in the local energy systems, transforming business models and asking for involvement from citizens, private companies and municipalities. The Clean Energy Package of EU provides the opportunity to citizen initiatives to take new roles in the energy system, including those related to aggregation, storage, local supply or sharing. The question, however, is how can prosumers and communities prepare to take on the new roles and become active players in the market? Which roles are possible? How can communities organize themselves? What technology can support them?
Community-based Virtual Power Plant (cVPP) is an ICT-based control system that allows for aggregation of community-owned distributed energy resources (e.g. PV on roofs) and flexible assets (EV, heat pump, battery). Thanks to cVPP, prosumers in a community can
collectively perform a certain role in the energy system. What makes VPP community-based is not only the involvement of a community but also the community logic under which it operates. This implies that the community needs to drive the initiative, that the community owns the various assets and the ICT platform and that members collectively make decisions and choose how they organize themselves.
Our goal is to share experiences with setting a cVPP in practice and offer an approach for replication of this innovation in your own community. The event is targeting all energy communities, energy consultants, project managers and citizen audience.
