Swell Energy consolidates its U.S. presence as it grows its virtual power plant pipeline

August 30, 2021 | Case Study

The rise of distributed energy resources (DERs) and consequent decentralization of power generation is one of the key pillars of the energy transition and a driving force behind power grid innovation. The latter has spurred technical developments that ensure the correct operation of the electrical grid (e.g., constraint management platforms, microgrid controllers) as well as innovative business models that capitalize on the growth of DERs. Virtual power plants (VPPs) composed of aggregated DERs are emerging as a promising solution to efficiently manage and capitalize on the growing numbers and capabilities of DERs, which has driven rapid developments worldwide in the past few years. VPP developer Swell Energy illustrates this trend in the U.S., where it has created a financing vehicle to fund its project portfolio.
