|Guidehouse Insights Leaderboard Report: VPP (Virtual Power Plant) Platform Providers|
|Published: April 8, 2020||Content info: 59 Pages; 25 Tables, Charts & Figures||
The evolution of energy markets is accelerating in the direction of a greater reliance on distributed energy resources (DER), whether those resources generate, consume, or store electricity. A platform to manage this increasing two-way complexity is a virtual power plant (VPP)-the concept that intelligent aggregation and optimization of DER can provide the same essential services as a traditional 24/7 centralized power plant.
VPPs can help transform formerly passive consumers into active prosumers through integration and optimization of new technologies, such as demand response (DR), solar PV systems, advanced batteries, and EVs. Prosumers become active participants in delivering services tailored to their own needs, but when called on, can also serve the needs of the larger grid. The companies in this ‘Leaderboard’ epitomize the innovation bubbling up from smaller innovators, often being used by larger more traditional technology companies.
This ‘Leaderboard’ from Guidehouse Insights, a Guidehouse company, ranks 15 VPP platform providers capable of creating mixed-asset VPPs. There providers are rated on the following criteria: vision; go-to-market strategy; partners/acquisitions/investors; DERMS integration strategy; technology scope; geographic reach; sales, marketing, and distribution; platform performance; value chain capture; project portfolio; business model; and staying power.
