The concept of Virtual Power Plants (i.e. aggregation of distributed generators through a centralised control architecture) was further developed in the European project FENIX and tested in real networks, namely with Iberdrola in Spain and EDF Energy in the UK. The potential for active participation in power markets and distribution network operation is demonstrated.
