Increasing amounts of variable generation in power networks are making these networks more unstable. Power from solar and wind generators is not generated when it is needed, and the power system has to adapt to this new situation.
We at KOENA tec are collecting and connecting smaller end-user devices into a virtual power plant. Those devices that are most flexible (e.g., coffee machines) are able to adjust their energy use to the available generation in the grid. This allows for saving resources, using more renewably generated energy and actively supports the transition to a clean energy economy.
