The virtual power plant (VPP) is a solution to a host of customer, utility, and transmission system challenges. Projects are pushing the envelope by intelligently managing diverse distributed energy resources (DER) with a distributed systems-of-systems approach. There are many innovators in the VPP space, including Enbala Power Networks. The company’s expansion of its controls architecture and partnership with ABB speak to the dynamic business case emerging for VPPs. A new DER management system (DERMS) being codeveloped with ABB is looking to push the VPP platform into the mainstream.

This webinar will provide a comprehensive look at VPPs. Join us as Peter Asmus of Navigant Research sets the stage with the latest market forecast and deployment trend insights. Enbala’s Bud Vos will also join the webinar to show how machine learning is transforming the ROI on VPPs, and Rick Nicholson of ABB will show how it sees technology evolving to solve digital grid challenges.
