National Grid ESO is looking to unlock stacking within the Balancing Mechanism (BM) as part of the development of the Dynamic Containment service. Following the soft launch of the service in October last year, companies such as Arenko and Flexitricity have begun providing frequency response to help manage demand and supply on Britain’s grid. As part of the continued development of Dynamic Containment, National Grid ESO is to unlock the ability for participants to stack their revenue streams, with batteries able to tender for bids in both the BM and Dynamic Containment during the same periods. It has set a target go-live date of 10am on Wednesday 27 January.
