Hydropower: we manage the most flexible assets

Statkraft began operating hydropower plants over 125 years ago in Norway. Hydropower plants can start within minutes and their level of output is easily controlled. Our experience in managing our own assets is the basis for effective management of third party facilities.

Intermittent power generation: we optimise their operations

Wind and solar power both depend on immediate weather conditions we cannot influence. However, they can be easily switched on or off, even remote-controlled. By combining them into one virtual power plant, Statkraft bundles them into a large-scale and reliable supplier. Within the virtual plant, the intermittent assets can be combined with flexible generation and storage and can contribute to the overall stability of the energy system.

"We connect thousands of renewable assets. Today and in the future, where the energy world is more and more renewable, the whole energy sector is depending on the weather. You need to be in the market 24/7 to understand and forecast every change of the renewable production. For example, when there is too much energy produced by a renewable plant, you can store it into batteries or the other way around. We can connect batteries in Spain with wind farms in Germany and that makes it scalable."

Storage: we create additional value

For our customers, we offer to maximise the value of grid-scale batteries and flexible generation facilities in the short-term energy markets and ancillary services markets. We integrate your assets into our virtual power plant. It allows us to remotely send schedules to the facility and read active power output in order to optimise your assets and your revenue streams.
