Virtual PowerPlants(VPPs) are an aggregation of different distributed energy resources(DER), controlled to meet the demand and manage loads, especially during the peak hours. They solutions those make a VPP possible include, DERs, energy storage solutions and a control and aggregation solution. A Distributed energy resource management solution enables the aggregation of the DERs and controls them so that all the connected DERs can be operated and controlled as a single unit. It also helps in visualizing the operation of the DERs. However, in a VPP the visibility on the load side is also very important. This helps in determining the loading patterns and the actual demand scenario. Each of the enabling technology has an important role to play in a VPP. This study helps in identifying the technologies those form a VPP, why are they important, important projects related to VPP and the important stakeholders involved in developing solutions for VPP.
