Challenge / Goal

  • Simplification of the integration of renewable energies
  • Increasing the resilience of the generation and distribution system
  • Making demand more flexible
  • Testing of business models


  • Integration of large numbers of decentralized plants and devices for automated provision of data.
  • Predicting energy flows and predictive optimization using AI (e.g., reinforcement learning)
  • Dynamization of user behavior and activation of citizens using IoT devices and smartphones
  • Simulation of interactive business models and products in real-lab and test environments

Citizen participation

  • Activation of citizens for the energy transition via smartphone and IoT devices
  • Connecting new customers by integrating e-mobility services.
  • Gamification and tangible energy management by collecting points for grid-friendly behavior.

A good example of user activation via virtual power plant is the internal test run of the "Smart Socket" project, the first part of the multi-stage LeipzigZERO program, with which Leipzig's municipal utilities aim to develop forward-looking energy awareness together with tenants in the long term. The dashboard visualizes the current power consumption of the connected smart plugs, which is continuously recorded. At the same time, the current utilization of the power grids is also displayed. Together, this data provides good guidance, showing when it makes sense to switch off Smart Plugs. This can then be initiated from the dashboard: Either directly or by instructing the user via a push message.
