IntraFlex was an innovation project where WPD bought flexibility services in NODES’ continuous, near term ShortFlex market. The project was funded by Ofgem’s Network Innovation allowance and aimed to trial flexibility procurement closer to real-time and address the impact of flexibility procurement from independent aggregators on Balance Responsible Parties. The project partners were WPD, NODES and Smart Grid Consultancy (SGC).The project ran during 2020 and 2021 and is now closed for participation.
Building on the learnings from IntraFlex, NODES is supporting WPD and SGC on the creation of a flexibility market design framework. This work is undertaken under the innovation project GammaFlex. Read more about GammaFlex on WPD’s webiste.
