Virtual power plant is a network of medium-scale, distributed power generating units identical to Combined Heat and Power (CHP) units, wind farms and solar plants as well as flexible power buyers and batteries. The combined units are transmitted through the main control room of the virtual power plant but remains autonomous in their process and ownership. The main objective of the virtual power plant is to relief the load on the grid by instantaneously providing the energy produced by the particular units during the peak load. Additionally, the combined power generation and power consumption of the interacted units in the virtual power plant is retailed on the energy exchange platforms. As per the study conducted by Market Research Future, the global market for Virtual Power Plant is likely to grow at the CAGR of around 5%.
Virtual power plant market comprises of a centralized IT control structure and distributed energy assets often non-conventional energy resources such as, solar, hydropower, wind and biomass units as well as flexible power consumers, by interacting with all the contributing units through a remote control unit. It later on establishes a data transfer between the fundamental control system and the contributing units. The central control unit is then unable to monitor, forecast and publish the network units. Virtual power plants prime objective is to integrate smooth functioning of large number of the non-conventional energy units into the existing central energy systems, this mainly occurs due to the flexibility coming from all networked units. Additionally, the power vendors within a frame of virtual power plant setup can use live data so as to enhance projecting and trading of renewables energies. As a result, virtual power plants gradually take over the role of the conventional power plants by vending their output on the wholesale markets and reassuring the authority for a balanced grid.
Geographically, the global Virtual Power Plant market has been divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Rest of the World. Currently, Asia-Pacific is expected to maintain its high market for Virtual Power Plant. This is mainly due to the grwoing demand for power through a reliable power source, which is further propelling the market in the region. Virtual power plant helps in offering the energy at peak usage times and the end-users can save up the supplied extra energy in the energy storage devices such as batteries. Also, the growing government stringent regulation and innovative initiatives for customer engagement, have added a boost to the end-user segment. The global rise in the demand for renewable energy in the power sector, changes in the dynamics of power grids from centralized to distributed, and modifying costs and easy convince of energy storage drive the evolution of the virtual power plant market.
