LEAG energy cubes

The virtual power plants of LEAG

Whether conventional producers, renewable energies, storage facilities or industrial and commercial enterprises, with the energy cubes we connect facilities of different sizes and functions to agile, virtual units.

A transformation of the energy system

More decentralized, more complex, more volatile - the energy system places high demands on current and future market participants: Secure supply, ensure grid stability, establish cost-effectiveness. The importance of cross-sectoral cooperation is growing. Producers and consumers from all sectors have an equal opportunity today to be part of innovative energy solutions that are in demand on the market.

LEAG's virtual power plants, the energy cubes, offer appealing access to the energy markets.

Virtual power plants

The basic principle of a virtual power plant is the systematic interaction of several individual assets on the market. By means of a common central control system, the use of the assets is planned and remotely controlled online – to the second, according to the demand and flexibly. As virtual power plant, they can take on additional tasks in the electricity or ancillary service markets that are not economically attractive or technically feasible for the individual asset due to the specific conditions.

LEAG energy cubes — central control system
Central control system

This is where all information comes together: Weather forecasts, market data and prices, information from the connected assets as well as consumption data and forecasts.

Control boxes

Via these interfaces the central control system receives the data of the plants and can remotely control them on the basis of individually created schedules.

Deployment planning

Based on the analysed data, the optimal deployment planning for power generation and balancing energy availability is created and adjusted if necessary.
