Kiwi Power supports multi-DNO collaboration

October 6, 2020

Kiwi Power is delighted to play a supportive role in the multi-DNO collaboration announced today in The Energyst.

Western Power Distribution, SP Energy Networks, Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks and Northern Powergrid are collaborating on Flexible Power to signpost and operate all of their flexibility requirements.

Based on its established Flexible Power cooperation with Western Power Distribution, Kiwi Power provides its Virtual Power Plant (VPP) software to the four Distribution Network Operators for them operate all their flexibility requirements.  It enables flexibility providers to directly participate in local grid constraint management services on multiple networks. Flexibility providers will be able to declare their assets’ availability, receive dispatch signals and view performance and settlement reports.

Stephan Marty, Chief Commercial Officer of Kiwi Power, said:

“We are very excited to announce our cooperation with these four leading UK distribution network operators which allows distributed energy resources to be utilised to provide flexibility to local grids.

This is a key enabling ingredient for the energy transition and the UK’s Net Zero carbon target by allowing a more efficient management of grid constraints thereby enabling more renewable generation and electric vehicles to be connected to the grid.

Deploying our proven VPP software for this application is another key step for distributed energy resources to provide flexibility to UK electricity system.”
