Grid & Market Optimization for Europe's largest Bifacial PV plant

Grid & Market Optimization for Europe's largest Bifacial PV plant

  • On May 6, 2022

Inaccess completed the commissioning of the UNITY Integrated platform in a 204MWp solar power plant in northern Greece. Consisting of 18 subfields, the plant covers an area of around 4,500 acres. It is one of the largest PV power plants in Europe using bifacial solar modules and is expected to deliver enough energy to power 75,000 homes and offset 300 Mtons of CO2 per year.

For this complex project, Inaccess successfully delivered UNITY Local and Cloud SCADA, a multi-level PPC consisting of a Dual Redundant Master and 18 Slaves and UNITY VPP/Market platform.

UNITY implements a variety of services, including a revenue-optimizing and auto-balancing combination of apparent and active power curtailment management across the subfields, and ancillary voltage support services. It also optimizes the integrated power forecast based on the plant's actual production and the built-in Availability Declaration Editor. All these services are integrated into a smart Physical Route to Market interface and directly connected to the local Energy Exchange for Day-Ahead and Intraday Market participation.
