We support for self-reliance of renewables from FiT

Renewable power is going to be integrated into the market.
zec.power creates a platform and cooperates with renewable power plant owners in dispersed locations, we are committed to providing the best possible service to our clients.
As the No.1 reliable aggregator we sell renewable power directly to such as the JEPX.*
*This service will be offered after the launch of the Feed-in-Premium (FIP), which is expected to start in April 2021.

We conduct direct marketing of your your renewable power (Solar and Wind only). In the direct marketing to the JEPX, a premium (market premium) is paid for the difference between the pre-determined fixed FIP price and the market reference price. If the market value of your power plant (quoted by us) is higher than the market reference price, we will add a further surcharge to your payment.
And through these businesses we support for self-reliance of renewable power from FIT.

  • Support for using the Feed-in Premium (FIP) program
  • Mitigate risks to power producers including imbalances
  • Support for measurement and storage of your power plant

R & D

in.power GmbH has participated in numerous R & D projects in Germany, specializing in VPP (virtual power plants) and business model development. One of the main research is the “E-Energy” project funded by the German federal government. Information and communication technology (ICT) played a central role in this project, which advocates the ICT-based energy system of the future, and the operation of an intelligent energy system that enables numerous renewable power generation facilities to communicate with power grid facilities and electricity-consuming devices was attempted. In addition, in.power GmbH works closely with research institutions and universities.
