Virtual Power Plant Projects

In August of last year I posted a paper on this subject linked below.

The prior paper explored the history and possible evolutionary path of this technology. I also reviewed a virtual power plant project that Tesla had started in Australia. Note that the prior paper and this one specifically focus on virtual power plants that use distributed battery storage (although there may be other elements).

I have been tracking these since the Virtual Resources Paper, and this paper will look at additional projects using this technology.
