Micro cogeneration technology (micro-CHP) is expected to be an important novel residential heating technology for the future in certain countries around the world. The interesting aspect of micro-CHP is that it is a controllable distributed generation technology. This paper provides novel conceptual insight into how micro-CHP systems can be controlled aggregatedly in virtual power plants (VPPs). Cost benefits for VPPs can be achieved through 'economies of intelligence' with the help of intelligent control schemes.
