California automaker plans to build a virtual power station in the UK and other countries using its Autobidder platform. He applied for a license in late April. Perhaps these will be large-scale battery storage projects, as has been done in Australia.
Virtual power plants are aggregate distributed energy assets that can be remotely controlled to act as power plants. Many enterprises are trying to build them, and they will increasingly need to maintain a stable energy system based on renewable energy sources.
Tesla also provides stationary storage for homes and businesses, as well as solar panels. It may also be planning to enable its cars to form part of any virtual power plant, though has not yet confirmed that ambition.
