Virtual power plants are considered a promising concept for the integration of decentralized energy resources into the future electricity grid. But such a plant must not only optimize load schedules merely according to given economic objectives and technical constraints, if it is to be considered as a green technology. Hence, environmental issues have to be incorporated into optimization objectives, too. Here, we show the possibility of integrating respective performance indicators into search space descriptions in a way that enables direct incorporation into optimization. A meta-model for constrained search spaces based on one-class support vector machines is enriched with information on individual environmental impacts.
