Wider access to the Balancing Mechanism webinar

Wider access to the Balancing Mechanism webinar

The Balancing Mechanism (BM) has so far only been accessible to energy suppliers and licenced generators; through the introduction of a new market structure, Virtual Lead Parties (VLP), National Grid ESO is opening up access to this real-time balancing market for all sources of electrical flexibility. This is a huge opportunity for those flexible energy users and small generators who previously haven’t been able to access the full range of revenue streams available to flexibility.

Flex Assure -  a code of conduct scheme for DSR aggregators launched

Flexitricity is proud to be one of the first four members of the newly launched Flex Assure scheme. This is something we’ve been working on alongside the Association for Decentralised Energy for the past two years and we’re delighted to see it reach the finish line. Lisa Perrin, Account and Business Development Manager at Flexitricity, has been elected by other scheme members to serve on the Flex Assure Steering Committee.

The compliance scheme (and Code of Conduct) will help businesses to compare the different services offered by aggregators. It will ensure greater transparency, give businesses confidence in the services being offered to them and build trust in this rapidly developing market.
