BiTraDER

Introducing our BiTraDER project

The BiTraDER project will design and trial options for the introduction of a bilateral trading market through which flexibility providers can trade their contracted curtailment obligation.

The innovative BiTraDER project has been awarded funding through Ofgem’s Network Innovation Competition 2021.

Electricity North West will begin delivery of this £8.4m, four-year project in May 2022 alongside project partners Electron, AFRY and Delta-EE

BiTraDER will investigate, design, build and trial – live on the network – options for the introduction of a bilateral trading market through which flexibility providers can trade their position in the merit order stack, which determines the order in which they are asked to curtail their output at times of high demand on the network.

BiTraDER aims to reduce barriers to the connection of low carbon generation on the network, boost value for connected resources, and bring down whole system costs by adding value to the flexibility market.
