Flexibility academy

As our electricity system continues to decarbonise and adapt to the electrification of heat and transport, new revenues and opportunities exist for flexibility providers. The ‘Flexibility academy’ introduces the key principles, concepts, and requirements for the procurement and provision of response and reserve services by the Electricity System Operator. Our experts will also introduce access and revenue opportunities from Balancing Mechanism participation.
