12th July 2019

In line with National Grid ESO’s System Needs and Product Strategy (SNaPS) the ESO is now in the process of trialing weekly procurement of frequency response services. Cornwall Insight will be reporting and analysing on every stage of this trial, as it highlights the potential future for the procurement of balancing services to come. 

The trial will test closer to real time procurement of frequency response and aims to facilitate lower barriers to entry for technologies, increase competition and transparency to ultimately deliver lower costs to end consumers. Our weekly summary will round up the latest developments in Phase 1 of the trial, covering analysis of successful participants, auction parameters, cleared volumes and prices for overnight and daytime periods, along with a weekly and historical overview of the trial.
