In the Interreg NWE funded cVPP project (no. 588) three communities from Ireland, Belgium and the Netherlands are developing and implementing their own community-based Virtual Power Plant (cVPP). But what is a cVPP?
This report represents the views of the consortium on what is considered to be a community-based Virtual Power Plant (cVPP). These views and the definition is based on many discussions, literature reviews, and interviews carried as part of the Interreg cVPP project. The report first discusses what is meant by (1) VPP and (2) community followed by the identification of the possible (3) roles communities could play in the energy system. Finally, it proposes a definition of the (4) cVPP.
