Free Webinar

The massive restructuring of the energy industry and digitization are forcing established regional energy suppliers to change and adapt to the market. Companies cannot escape these developments and can only participate if they develop new business models at an early stage. For example, maintaining grid stability and the need for sector coupling in the wake of the increasing share of volatile renewable power generation are opening up new fields of activity in the area of flexibility for energy suppliers.

In the webinar, an expert from Statkraft Markets GmbH explains how real and flexible green power solutions can meet the requirements for simultaneity of consumption and generation as well as significant generation from Germany.  A best practice example from the virtual power plant operator bentonet shows how sector coupling of innovative generation plants is implemented.
