Virtual Power Plant Integrally Controls Dispersed Storage Batteries

Virtual Power Plant Integrally Controls Dispersed Storage Batteries

Dispersed storage batteries 'aggregated' SB Energy Corp of Minato-ku, Tokyo, which belongs to the SoftBank Group and is engaged in the renewable energy business, carried out a verification project for construction and operation of a "virtual power plant (VPP)" in Ikinoshima Island, Nagasaki City, from July 2016 to February 2017. The VPP is a system to integrate and remotely control "Distributed Energy Resources (VER)" (e.g. dispersed power sources and storage batteries) and storage batteries to achieve effects similar to those realized by output control of a large-scale thermal power plant. The system is being validated in many countries throughout the world for use as a grid stabilization system, when the supply-demand of power tends to become unbalanced due to the spread of solar and wind power generation facilities. In the VPP system, "aggregators" that aggregate distri...
