Piclo, the leading independent marketplace for flexibility services, has been chosen to deliver Italy’s first local flexibility market by E-Distribuzione, part of ENEL Global Group. Piclo Flex will provide the end-to-end solution to acquire and dispatch flexibility services to solve local constraint issues on E-Distribuzione’s networks, which is the largest Distribution System Operator (DSO) in Italy.
Companies with assets such as electric vehicles or battery storage systems that are interested in earning additional revenue by providing short and medium-term grid services are invited to register on Piclo Flex.
Local flexibility services offer cost-effective solutions to drive decarbonisation, optimise network management and increase resilience. DSOs across Europe are establishing new local markets to acquire services for congestion management and voltage regulation in response to the EU’s Clean Energy Package. E-Distribuzione’s Project EDGE (Energy from Distributed Resources for the Management of the E-Distribuzione Network) aims to test and establish the most appropriate solution for the procurement of local ancillary services and the related remuneration in Italy. The project will initially cover areas in four provinces between North and South of Italy
James Johnston, CEO and co-founder of Piclo said:
“We are incredibly excited to launch this new market alongside E-Distribuzione, which is setting a new, leading standard for what can be achieved through DSO flexibility markets. This unparalleled development across Europe marks a new era for these markets including short-term flexibility services, greater integrations and end-to-end automation and ultimately improved network decarbonisation and resilience. We can’t wait to get going.”
