EP NL is pleased to announce that its subsidiary, PZEM Energy Company B.V., has signed a contract with Spectral, a leading innovator in integrating energy and information technologies, and a prominent scale-up in the energy sector. This collaboration marks a significant step towards optimizing and integrating various flexible energy assets within the PZEM portfolio.

What does the deal entail

The deal includes a collaboration in which PZEM will utilize the technology and expertise of Spectral to integrate various flexible assets of our customers within a single virtual power plant. This involves battery optimization, wind, and solar park curtailment, demand response (for example E-boilers and electrolysers), and Combined Heat & Power (CHP) optimization.

As a qualified Balance Responsible Party (BRP), Balance Service Provider, and Congestion Service Provider, PZEM has 24/7 access to all flexibility markets. Thanks to the collaboration with Spectral, we can now connect these markets with our existing portfolio. At PZEM, we aim to give our customers access to the various flexibility markets, considering the deployment of this flexibility as equivalent to our assets. Compensation for flexibility is carried out based on a transparent, objective, and market-oriented reward, providing the right incentive to deploy PZEM’s knowledge and experience in customer service. Due to the synergistic effects that arise, PZEM expects to remain competitive and distinctive in the growing field of service providers in the area of flexibility optimization
