BlueGen goes virtual in the Netherlands
BlueGen developer Ceramic Fuel Cells has announced a project in The Netherlands to create a Virtual Power Plant using a network of BlueGen gas-to-electricity generators.
BlueGen units are to be installed with customers across the Netherlands to create a new community of distributed energy producers, connected through the internet and operated as a Virtual Power Plant.
Ceramic Fuel Cells is supporting its distribution partner, BlueGeneration, which is working on the project with Liander and IBM.
This team will start designing a platform on which the Virtual Power Plant can run.
During the design phase BlueGeneration, Liander and IBM will design the technical requirements and define use cases for the platform.
Liander is a Dutch regional network operator, distributing electricity to 3.0m customers and gas to 2.3m customers in a large part of the Netherlands.
IBM will provide the necessary system integration to control the BlueGen units remotely.
