The deployment of the local flexibility market – which is located in East Fife, Scotland – forms a key objective of SPEN’s £5.7 million Project FUSION, which is looking at pioneering ways to operate the electricity distribution network. As part of the trial – which is now live – SPEN is tendering for 4.5MW of flexibility capacity across Leuchars and St Andrews in Fife. Engie Power and Orange Power are to act as aggregators, acting on behalf of customers to trade their electricity consumption and generation flexibility in a new digital marketplace. The local flexibility market is expected to operate at least until the middle of 2023, with various interim learning reports to be published over the next two years, culminating in a final comprehensive close-down report in October 2023.
