Link: Virtual Power Plants and software

Virtual Power Plants (VPPs) reduce the need for these “peaker” plants by aggregating distributed energy resources (DERs). DERs such as rooftop solar, home/office batteries, EVs and chargers, smart home devices and electric water heaters, are being installed at greater and greater rates. In the US the DER market is expected to double by 2027 with 262 gigawatts of additional capacity installed1 (enough to power 750,000 American homes). These DERs can help the grid by reducing or meeting demand through remote control. This avoids having to burn dirty fuels during peak loads. #
