The trials will help us to design the flexibility markets of the future which will free up space on the network for Low Carbon Technologies and enable Distributed System Operations.
The TRANSITION project is carrying out these trials in Oxfordshire as part of Local Energy Oxfordshire.
We are currently working with our partners in LEO looking at how we can open this opportunity up to people with under 50kW but in the mean time we recommend that if you do not meet this threshold that you work with an aggregator.
What you could earn will depend on the assets you have, their capacity, the number of services you take part in and various other factors
You could be paid up to £500/MWh for supplying flexible energy. We will offer fixed price options for those looking for certainty from the market and auctions for those looking to optimise their market position.
We are keen for as many people and individual assets to be able to take part in our flexibility market trials in Oxfordshire as possible.
We are developing a range of ‘Stimulation Packages’ that will offer more financial certainty than a traditional competitive auction environment and that supports investment in your assets so you are eligible to take part.
