A balanced grid is a happy grid and the people that run our grid are called 'National grid'
National Grid has a licence obligation to control frequency within the limits specified in the 'Electricity Supply Regulations', i.e. ±1% of nominal system frequency (50.00Hz) save in abnormal or exceptional circumstances. National Grid must therefore ensure that sufficient generation and / or demand is held in automatic readiness to manage all credible circumstances that might result in frequency variations.
The whoove virtual power plant, therefore you, will be part of this balancing mechanism.
