Owners, operator, or aggregators of generation, storage, or demand assets over 10 kW in SSEN’s distribution regions.
Flexibility service providers will be informed of a date and time where they may be required to turn demand or generation up/down. This will only be utilised if the grid requires it, which will be communicated nearer the time.
Once you are signed up as an FSP, you will receive an availability notice one month in advance of the flexibility services you are contracted to provide. This is dispatched through Flexible Power — the comprehensive flexibility platform we use alongside 3 other DNOs.
If you have assets that are eligible for flexibility in both our English (SEPD) and Scottish (SHEPD) regions, you will have to go through the process twice. This means prequalifying, taking part in the mini competition, and signing contracts twice to take part in both markets.
