Industrial demand flexibility: A German case study

  • Business opportunities for energy providers to utilize flexible industrial demand are platform-based, connecting small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to a virtual power plant (VPP) in complex ecosystems. Unlike in other VPPs, the focus is on participation, data, and control sovereignty for the SMEs. An exemplary application for an existing cement mill demonstrates positive margins. Viable VPP business models for small and medium-sized utilities include the “orchestrator,” i.e., adding value by linking services of specialized providers, the “integrator,” i.e., incorporating internal and external processes and resources, as well as the “white label user,” i.e., using a turn-key VPP from an exclusive cooperation partner.
