Connecting renewable energy generators with consumers.
The Photon Energy Virtual Power Plant (VPP) aggregates energy from renewable sources including solar, wind and biogas. We connect renewable energy generators, energy storage facilities, grid operators and consumers into one system, helping everyone benefit from the clean energy transition.
Imagine we have many small power sources, like rooftop solar panels or wind turbines in different locations. They generate electricity, but may be too far apart or unable to produce enough power to meet the needs of a whole community. Now imagine we could connect all these small power sources together and manage them as if they were a single, larger power plant. That's exactly what our virtual power plant does.
Electricity is generated or supplied from storage. Each source produces power based on its capacity and environmental conditions.
Our VPP aggregates the energy into a unified system. It collects data from each resource, such as their current output and availability.
Software and control systems continuously monitor and optimise energy generation and consumption to determine the most efficient allocation of resources.
Generated energy is balanced against current demand. Power output and consumption is adjusted based on real-time demand fluctuations, grid requirements and other factors.
The VPP is connected to the electrical grid. This allows the supply of energy to grid-connected consumers.
Electricity is transmitted through the grid to energy consumers.
Our virtual power plant allows us to provide a range of comprehensive clean energy solutions to all of Photon Energy Group’s customers.
The power generated by the virtual power plant can provide a reliable supply of clean, sustainable energy to businesses, households and other energy consumers.
We also design and build customised on-site solar power generation and storage systems. Depending on their installation and energy needs, consumers can sell any excess energy through our VPP. And the opportunities don’t end there. By participating in our Demand Side Response and capacity market programs, consumers can profit risk-free from possible energy consumption adjustments.
For renewable energy generators, our VPP offers a way to offtake, aggregate and optimise the energy produced by your installations, providing a means to efficiently manage and sell energy to the market or end consumers.
We also provide opportunities to adjust output in order to generate additional income.
Even small-scale installations can join the Photon Energy Virtual Power Plant and maximise the profits from renewable energy systems such as rooftop solar panels.
We can connect grid operators with renewable energy generators and consumers of all sizes.
Through our DSR and capacity market programs, our VPP can help balance the grid by adjusting power generation and consumption in response to fluctuations in demand or supply, ensuring a stable, smoothly functioning system.
