The 2017 German Renewables Act (EEG) paved the way for the commercial use of innovative energy storage technologies. In addition to large-scale battery storage power stations and intermediate storage solutions for fluctuating generation technologies, this also includes swarm storage solutions.

Today, power can be traded at the power exchange up to five minutes before the start of delivery.

The energy transition in Germany has been an important topic for society as well as business for many years. As a pioneering company, Energy2market has been actively involved in discussions and events in order to maintain direct contact and interworking with the industry.
Only eight weeks ago, experts from the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), Bitkom e.V. and the city of Leipzig visited Energy2market GmbH (e2m) in the framework of the “Digital Hub” initiative and learnt about the digital business model of the system integrator and power trader. At the end of April, BMWi selected the cities of Leipzig and Dresden as the sole cluster worthy of support in the field of energy.
Exactly one year ago, Energy2market GmbH (e2m) and GELSENWASSER AG (Gelsenwasser) announced their strategic partnership in control energy marketing at E-world in Essen. In this context, the recipe for success is combining the strengths of the two partners, the process and industry expertise of Gelsenwasser and the e2m experience in energy trading and the operation of virtual power plants (VPP). The companies have now explained the milestones which have been reached as well as the next steps envisaged.
Since the autumn of 2015, Energy2markt (e2m) has successfully implemented its tried and tested as well as highly innovative Virtual Power Plant (VPP) on the Polish energy market - with the support of the German Energy Agency (dena). This project was now officially concluded in late November.
