Virtual Power Plant LLC (VPPlant) works in the field of energy management and development of IT systems for the optimization of energy consumed in buildings. The company has developed its own energy management technology (Enabler DSR) for heat, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), which adjusts the HVAC controls to building’s thermal characteristics, weather conditions, occupancy
and other parameters. The main goal of VPPlant is to launch a fully functional virtual power plant in Poland. To this end, the company develops services and an IT system which aggregates the potential to shift energy consumption between groups of buildings and share this potential with energy companies in the form of ‘negawatts” (energy which was consciously saved) within the Demand Side Response programme (DSR).
Within driv2e project we shift the energy consumption between the ventilation systems and charging infrastructure to current demand in real time, to optimize power usage of the building-charging station setup. driv2e provides facility managers of commercial properties (office buildings, shopping centres, sport venues) with the platform for managing EV charging services, while continuously optimizing energy infrastructure of the building. driv2e enables faster and easier installation of EV chargers at commercial facilities to increase the number of serviced cars.
