VPP stands for a virtual power plant which is a network of distributed energy resources - such as residential solar and battery systems - that all work together as a single power plant and central controlled through wifi technology by authorized retailers; you can treat each battery system as a micropower station. Energy retailers sometimes will force your battery system to charge or discharge to distributed energy resources for the purposes of enhancing power generation, as well as trading or selling power in the electricity market. VPPs are regarded as the future of the power market. VPP is emerging as a solution to resolve the grid power unstable issues.
During a VPP event, the energy retailer may discharge (sell) some of the electricity during the peak time from your battery or charge your battery (buying electricity from the grid during off-peak time). Some retailers may use your solar and battery system to provide grid stability services by discharging or charging the batteries for shorter periods at rapid speed to raise or lower the frequency of electricity in the grid. Either way, the VPP retailer will seek to generate revenue from trading electricity on the National Electricity Market, and reward you and the other households enrolled in the VPP for your participation.
