- Barriers and Opportunities - Implementing Trial Phase One
This report focusses on learning, specifically the barriers and opportunities identified, from the first phase of Flexibility Market Trials which are being run in conjunction with SSEN’s TRANSITION project. This first phase of trials ran from November 2021 to February 2022.
The trials were focused on
- testing new markets, approaches and platforms that facilitate the buying and selling of flexible energy services to the Distributions System Operator (DSO) and also facilitate DSO-enabled services such as grid connection capacity, and
- for companies and organisations in the same local area to trade grid connection capacity between each other.
