A virtual power plant, also known as a VPP, a system that uses a network of distributed energy resources (DERs) such as solar panels, wind turbines, and energy storage systems to generate and manage electricity. Unlike a traditional power plant that relies on a central source of generation, a VPP is decentralized and can be located at multiple sites across a grid. One of the key benefits of a VPP is its ability to provide flexibility and reliability to the power grid. Because the generation and storage of electricity is distributed across multiple sites, a VPP can quickly adjust to...
