The focus of the trial is to understand how to deliver a link between DNO procurement activity and Balance Responsible Party (BRP) imbalance positions.

As such the project will look to trial a short-term marketplace for the procurement of DNO flexibility. This will trial an active rebalancing link to the Nord Pool intraday market as well as an information exchange with day-ahead markets.  The project also aims to open up for independent aggregators to participate alongside BRPs
The objective of the project is to develop learning on
  • The operability of short term flexibility markets
  • The value of increased information at the day ahead stage to suppliers
  • The value of an integrated link for rebalancing in the intra-day market
The project will deliver a more cost reflective market structure, added transparency to flexibility costs which should allow for more informed market investment decisions to be made, reducing the impact on the wider customer.
