What is a virtual power plant?

A virtual power plant, or VPP for short, is sometimes used to refer to a network of connected solar batteries that can be managed as one.


The idea is that individual batteries can be coordinated, and in doing so become a pop-up power plant. So small amounts of energy stored in individual batteries can become a large amount of controllable energy. This can help avoid power outages and contribute to making energy more affordable in the future.
