Virtual Power Plants
“How can distributed energy resources match the generation capacity of more traditional power plants?”
With the ascent of distributed energy resources, power plants are becoming an emblem of bygone days. However, many people still want to emulate the generation capacity. So how can we do this using our new technology? Well, what if we were to coordinate all of the distributed energy resources together such that they achieve the volume of traditional plants? These are known as Virtual Power Plants and are becoming a hot topic in renewable energy.
