Svenska kraftnät, Ellevio and Vattenfall Eldistribution have launched sthlmflex to test a regional flexibility market in the Stockholm area to bridge the capacity gap that can be experienced during winter months.
The sthlmflex project is uniq because it takes place in the largest region in Sweden and it involves two regional DSO’s and the TSO. The project will seek to find a way to enable the continuing growth of the region by providing a smarter distribution system. The project seeks to recruit flexibility service providers (FSP) to participate in live test during the winter season 2020/2021.
This research and development project has contracted with NODES to operate the market. Coordination between TSO and DSO is a key element of the project and NODES will offer a market based coordination alternative, as well as integration to the TSO mFRR market.
