With the rise of renewable energy adoption, traditional energy markets experience shifts, requiring adaptive power trading strategies. Understanding and responding to market behaviors, such as price fluctuations and grid stress events, presents significant challenges.


Energy2Market addresses these challenges using its proprietary Presumed Optimization Library to tailor optimization problems for its virtual power plant. This involves modeling diverse energy assets and optimizing power generation schedules based on market trends. The process incorporates operational limits, market regulations, and grid requirements. Continuous and rolling optimization techniques allow E2 to dynamically respond to market changes and maximize revenue.


The presentation highlights two use cases demonstrating the effectiveness of optimization. One involves a biogas power plant, where optimization aligns power generation with market price fluctuations. The other focuses on a solar power plant with battery storage, showing dynamic power trading adjustments based on real-time data. The results reveal significant revenue potential and grid support capabilities from optimized power trading strategies.
