Project: Smart Integrated Energy Systems 2022:Enhanced Virtual Power Plant VPP+ Energy Pool Integration for Local and Regional Resilience

Acronym SIES2022 (Reference Number: 91413)
Duration 01/12/2019 - 30/11/2022
Project Topic SIES2022 will support transition to a decentralised multi-sector and multi-energy vector, low CO2 Smart Integrated Energy System (SIES) by development of a Digital Energy Utility Management Service (DEUMS). DEUMS will provide solutions and establish routes-to-market for need-owners and businesses. An existing digital Virtual Power Plant (VPP) platform will be adapted into an Enhanced Virtual Power Plant (VPP+) development, demonstration, and test centre (SIES2022 Centre) capable of managing the interface between local and regional energy systems and markets. SIES2022 will develop and demonstrate: need-owner engagement, business and technical processes for VPP+ deployment; trading and technical algorithms; cross-sector applications; a ‘Powershift’ module; and modelling to support optimum design of future systems. Outputs will be shared through solutions-libraries, roadmaps, and investment-ready roadmaps for distributed Knowledge Communities and Energy Pools.
