Grid Operators and Utilities
Virtual Power Plants deliver GWs of demand reduction commitments and help meet real-time supply needs.
The Customer-Powered GridTM reduces new infrastructure needs, and helps achieve renewable energy goals and grid balancing obligations.
In order for the grid to stay balanced as clean and renewable sources are integrated, grid operators and utilities need flexible distributed energy resources (DERs) – that is any grid-connected asset that consumes, generates or stores electricity and that can respond to a signal.
CPower works with energy users, Technology Providers and DER Portfolio Owners and Operators across the country to unlock the value of their DERs to balance the power grid when and where it’s needed the most.
More and more, DERs are being called upon to balance the grid and keep the lights on as a combination of more frequent extreme weather events, greater integrations of variable renewables, and evolving consumption and demand patterns continue to put stress on the grid.
CPower enables the grid to utilize DERS to address a growing range of grid needs. CPower’s solutions act as a supply-side flexible resource for capacity, economic and ancillary services, to reduce the chance of blackouts.
