As the energy sector transitions to renewable sources, Virtual Power Plants (VPPs) help balance energy generation with demand and ensure grid stability. Jedlix's VPP solution offers a range of features to support energy suppliers and balancing parties in integrating renewable sources into the grid including:
Powerful optimization algorithms:
Jedlix VPP uses powerful algorithms that continuously calculate the most optimal time to charge every single EV in a VPP. This considers factors such as battery level, user preferences (departure time), energy tariff settings and optimization of the VPP based on Day Ahead prices.
Real-time power consumption monitoring and steering:
Our VPP allows real-time monitoring of the planned and actual power consumed by all the cars combined along with their minimum and maximum power consumption levels. This information is calculated based on AI-powered interpretation of all the data points the asset connects, helping energy companies to optimize the VPP operations and respond to any capacity constraints. Besides monitoring, the VPP allows for real-time steering and complies with advanced grid balancing services like aFRR.
Historical energy consumption data:
With Jedlix VPP, energy companies can retrieve the historical energy consumption data per EV or for a fleet at custom time intervals down to a 5-minute granularity. This level of granularity helps to understand the energy consumption patterns of EVs while optimizing VPP operations accordingly.
Day-ahead consumption forecast:
Jedlix VPP also provides a forecast of the VPP’s expected energy consumption for the next full day. This forecast is based on multiple input signals, such as expected EPEX Spot prices or renewable production, and helps energy companies to reduce imbalance and lowers costs.
Flexible capacity forecast:
Finally, Jedlix VPP provides a rolling forecast of the available flexible capacity for a specific time interval in the future. This forecast helps to plan and optimise VPP operations and respond to any changes in energy demand or supply.
Overall, our VPP solution is designed to handle complex and dynamic scenarios and take into account various factors to determine the available energy capacity in your VPP system. With Jedlix VPP, energy companies can optimize VPP operations, respond to capacity constraints, and increase efficiency and reliability.
