Decentralised generation plants and flexible loads are becoming key to meeting the growing demands of the balancing power market.

Balancing reserve is designed to compensate fluctuations in the power grid in order to keep the grid frequency stable. This balancing can either be positive or negative. D-Central is a solution that allows you to market technical units depending on your capabilities, whether they are disconnectable loads or generation units.


With our flexible modelling solutions, we seamlessly integrate your plant into our power plant pool.

D-Central acts as an interface between the balancing power markets and your technical units. Become part of our virtual power plant and help to pave the way for the future of energy supply.
