ENTRNCE has found its first business partner in the United Kingdom. The Alliander subsidiary has joined forces with Manchester based Evergreen Smart Power (ESP). Smart software and connected hardware allows ESP to manage the collective loads of consumer charging points, heat pumps and home battery systems in a Virtual Power Plant (VPP).
‘We feel we can truly create a win-win together, as ENTRNCE can optimise VPPs with peer-2-peer propositions. Our platform also provides means to power these energy systems with 100% traceable renewable power’, says UK Business Manager Jaron Reddy. ‘Together, we can make renewable energy more accessible for consumers and provide a level of independency by optimising energy efficiency.’
Andy McKay, CEO of Evergreen Smart Power: ‘We are really excited about teaming up with ENTRNCE in the UK. Our software platform integrates a wide range of energy technologies and manages them in real time. This means we can also react to grid conditions, by increasing or limiting power consumption. In that way, we can also help DNO’s to deliver their flexibility services.’
Evergreen Smart Power is demonstrating the power of VPP’s in its FRED and DINO trials. As part of this exciting program, ESP is managing the loads of 250 householders to explore routes to market for domestic DSR – largely focusing on electric vehicle charging and the smart management of EV’s, heat pumps and batteries on low voltage networks.
