Virtual Power Plant

What is a Virtual Power Plant

A new concept designed to maximise solar and battery efficiencies.
When a network of batteries integrates online, the combined volume of energy becomes a VPP.

Discover Energy coordinates this via the DE VPP system to trade battery power with the electricity grid and have it dynamically respond to market demands.


Powered by the solar system and stored in your home battery, DE's smart algorithms determine the optimal time to sell the stored energy back to the grid at premium prices.


The world's first innovative VPP technology: your solar system, battery and a cloud-based software makes for a simple installation with no extra hardware required.


With a strong focus on renewable power, Discover Energy will help your home be more efficient towards reducing your carbon footprint.
