A virtual power plant is a centralized energy distribution system that can be controlled remotely.
A virtual power plant is a centralized energy distribution system that can be controlled remotely. It is made up of many small energy sources like solar panels and batteries.
Essentially, with VPPS, individual buildings can operate as their own power plant. VPPs are similar to microgrids however, according to Green Tech Media, they differ in a few key ways:
- VPPs are connected to the grid whereas microgrids are often off-grid
- VPPs can be connected to any part of the grid whereas microgrids are confined to certain locations
VPPs are integral to our renewable energy transition because they reduce dependence on the legacy grid.
According to Climate Tech VC, they allow us to produce and store clean energy on-site and dynamically control in-house demand based on real-time pricing signals.
Having this information can allow consumers to lessen their energy consumption during peak demand times, reduce their energy rate, and sell energy back to the grid.
Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAFs) are a promising sustainable solution. These fuels can either be biofuels or synfuels, which can be used without modifying existing aircraft
In this snippet, we’ll explore how AI is revolutionizing the field of weather prediction and how it can impact the renewable energy industry.
