Warsaw to launch pilot market for distributed flexibility

A letter of intent to establish a pilot market for distributed flexibility has been signed by Stoen Operator, a regional power distribution network operator, together with Warsaw City Council and NODES, an independent market operator (18 July).

The letter’s signatories aim to analyse and potentially organise local flexibility markets in selected locations of the Warsaw Distribution System Operator (DSO) network.

Increasing the power system’s flexibility is considered one of the biggest challenges in the green transition. At the level of distribution system operators, flexibility is key to eliminating congestion, creating opportunities to connect additional renewables, and limiting additional investments in infrastructure by transmission and distribution system operators, NODES said in a press release.

Stoen Operator supplies energy to over a million customers in the Polish capital and its surrounding areas.

Cooperation with partners such as NODES and Stoen Operator can give the local administration a set of new smart tools for projects aimed at mitigating climate change and increasing energy security, said Robert Bański, Director of the Infrastructure Office of the City of Warsaw.

Mr Bański also said that Warsaw is “convinced” that municipalities will play an increasingly important role in the energy transformation process.
