Individual company presentation

Next Kraftwerke is the operator of a large-scale Virtual Power Plant (VPP) and a certified power trader on different European exchange markets (e.g. EPEX Spot and EEX). The VPP bundles more than 16,000 electricity producers and storage units. These include solar, co-located pv and storage, biogas, natural gas CHP, hydro and wind power plants, as well as loads such as water pumps, cold storage, industrial processes, plus batteries and power-to-X plants. With currently about 350 employees, Next Kraftwerke develops solutions for the electricity market of the future and is actively driving forward the energy transition. The company's innovative ideas and concepts have received numerous awards – including the Intersolar Award and the Smarter E Award.

As the largest trader of solar power in Germany, Next Kraftwerke is a strong partner to this industry. Over 6,000 MW of photovoltaics are included in the trading portfolio, which comprises a total of about 13,500 MW. By digitally aggregating renewable energy installations, the VPP enables its customers to participate in different power exchanges. Furthermore, it offers solutions for an energy system that relies on fluctuating energy sources such as wind and sun. This works because flexible assets in the portfolio – like biogas, batteries, and hydropower – compensate for these fluctuations. With the help of live data from the installations as well as current weather and market data the company can forecast the output of the VPP – and control the networked plants accordingly.
