Application

Virtual power plant (VPP) integration.


Opportunity

Bryt Energy, a subsidiary of Statkraft offers an energy supply tariff that factors in the installation of an energy storage system on the customer’s site. This system is then operated by Statkraft’s virtual power plant.

By capitalising on the ability of the VPP to take advantage of changes in the wholesale price of electricity and charge or discharge the battery accordingly, Bryt offers a competitive 100% renewable energy tariff.


Solution

The first battery system to be connected to the Statkraft VPP was an E-STOR. Connected Energy adapted the interface so that Statkraft could take control and charge or discharge the system based on energy costs forecasts from their trading desk in Dusseldorf. This process involves the transfer of a schedule between Statkraft and the Connected Energy back office.

The system has affectively operated since May 2017.

The energy landscape has shifted. The debate isn't just about how much energy we use, it's also about when we use it
