Flexible Power is not the contracting entity for flexibility services. Flexibility Providers need to contract with each DNO they wish to provide flexibility services to.

Yes, providers can contract with DNOs directly or via a third party. In either instances the contracting party must be registered and qualify to tender via each DNOs procurement process.
To allow us to send requests to you to turn your assets on and off we need to communicate over an Application Programme Interface (API). The API will also be used to send us your meter readings.
More information can be found in our API Guide.

Yes, but the point of connection between the IDNO Networks and the DNO network must be within the defined boundary of the same Constraint Management Zone (CMZ).
Yes, if you have an alternative/non-firm connection such as Active Network Management (ANM), Timed or Intertrip connection that limits you from exporting under certain conditions/ times of day, this will not affect your ability to participate in Flexible Power.
However, any limiting instructions will take precedence over Flexible Power instructions, should the two conflict.
You must ensure that the service you offer is allowed with your connection agreement. Should a change be required please follow your DNOs standard processes.
