About Flexitricity

Flexitricity is a demand response business which provides fast access to response and reserve energy that is delivered with a lower cost and lower emissions than conventional power stations.

Flexitricity pioneered aggregated demand-side reserve services (DSR) for electricity system balancing, and continues to lead this sector in volume, technical capability and innovation. Flexitricity creates this reserve by aggregating small generators and flexible electrical loads into capacity groups that are made available to National Grid or one of the UK’s Distribution Network Operators for short periods when the national or local electricity system is under stress. These generation assets and electrical loads are owned by third party industrial and commercial businesses that partner with Flexitricity for market access and service provision.

To complement the core DSR business Flexitricity has developed a new energy supply offering (Flexitricity+) that is aimed at a subset of industrial and commercial customers.  Launched in October 2018, Flexitricity+ provides a transparent market access for CHP operators, battery developers, small merchant generators and energy-intensive industrial sites.  Using our 24-hour control room and live smart grid platform, we monetise the flexibility of our customers in on-the-day markets such as the Balancing Mechanism.
