Energy technology company Kiwi Power has announced completion of a demand side aggregation project in the Netherlands.

 

The Engie project uses Kiwi Power’s bespoke hardware and virtual power plant software to provide grid flexibility to the system operator in the local frequency containment reserve electricity balancing (FCR) market.

 

The so-called “Battery Box” project will deliver up to 3MW for system operator TenneT and is designed to be mobile, powering construction sites, events or when the grid capacity is not sufficient enough, said Kiwi Power.

 

Demand side flexibility

 

The Netherlands is one of Europe’s highest ranking and active regions for demand side flexibility notes Delta-EE’s according to Delta-EE’s forward-looking 2019 Market Monitor Map for Demand Side Flexibility.

 

Between projects it will be placed into the local FCR market, with the aim of boosting grid reliability for the local area and providing a consistent revenue stream for asset owners Engie and Bredenoord, an independent specialist that develops, supplies, maintains and operates decentralised energy systems worldwide.

 

“Step-by-step we’re seeing changing regulation allow more countries to benefit from distributed energy resource flexibility, which will be a critical enabler of Europe’s sustainable recovery post Covid-19,” said Stephan Marty, chief commercial officer at Kiwi Power.

“Becoming active in our tenth market not only marks our own success but is reflective of our continuing momentum in Europe.”

 

He continued: “As further European markets open up to distributed energy resource flexibility, Kiwi Power is perfectly positioned to enter these key regions as early as possible, enabling us to continue our European success story.”

 

Established in 2009, Kiwi Power said it has used its distributed energy solutions platform to deliver greater grid reliability and resilience across the continent. The technology company claims several of Europe’s most active demand side response (DSR) markets among its client roster including France, the UK and Germany.
