As flexibility markets continue to develop there is a requirement to investigate nearer to real time procurement of flexibility services. With growing volumes of flexibility procured at a distribution level, there is also a need to address the imbalances that result for balance responsible suppliers when the DSO procures flexibility from independent aggregators. IntraFlex is developing a market, with NODES as market operator, to test nearer to real time flexibility procurement and the potential for supplier imbalances to be minimised through market mechanisms. Early results indicate that there is interest in providing these services and in particular larger volume bids posted by the DSO (over 2MW) cleared more quickly than those of a smaller size. This is invaluable learning as markets for flexibility develop.

CINELDI is a research centre for environment-friendly energy research (FME), focusing on the future flexible, intelligent and robust electricity distribution grid. CINELDI has 29 partners from the Norwegian power industry. The partners are involved in the centre via research, laboratory activities and pilot projects. This paper describes a common process for pilot projects established within FME CINELDI, with main focus on the pilot process and how pilot projects at user partner are initiated, executed and finalised, exemplified with a description of the following selected pilot projects: Pilot projects at Skagerak Energilab related to transition to island mode (Case 1.1) and optimization of local balancing with batteries (Case 1.2), and pilot projects with flexibility markets to solve voltage problems due to bottlenecks in the distribution grid (mainland) (Linja - Case 2) and on an island (Haugaland Kraft Nett – Case 3).

Paving the way for flexibility highlights the challenges faced with the ongoing energy transition and how the NODES market design can help address these challenges.
