Flexible Power aims to help business customers in Western Power Distribution's licence areas     make the most of their energy flexibility. This is done  by providing access to  Constraint Managed Zones (CMZ) services  which are split into three    products:  Secure, Dynamic    & Restore.

The results of the EoI are available here.

Please remember that submissions at the EoI stage were non-binding and that additional volume can be added to the zones being taken forward as and when it becomes available.
To proceed with participation several commercial and technical tasks must now be undertaken to get to service operational. 

The deadline for the Procurement phase is 17.00 on 19/09/2018.

If you have any questions please contact WPDflexiblepower@westernpower.co.uk.
