National Grid is now working with Piclo on a project to deliver an independent marketplace that widens and streamlines participation for all types of distributed energy resources (DERs) capable of providing flexibility services, otherwise known as non-wires alternatives (NWAs). The Piclo Flex marketplace is free to use and represents a simplified procurement process for flexibility services that will provide improved grid stability. The initial phase of the project will run for 12 months with the first flexibility competitions in early 2023. The project covers the area of New York State, with emphasis on National Grid’s upstate New York region and is open to all flexible service providers with existing or planned assets.
We encourage developers to register on the Piclo platform to get notified of the upcoming RFPs / competition releases from National Grid, and participate in any future competitions. Register now via Piclo Flex.
