The term Transfer of Energy refers to a framework to enable independent flexibility service providers (or independent aggregators) to have access to electricity markets and valorize the flexibility independent of the Supplier and Balance Responsible Party (BRP).
Central to the Transfer of Energy framework is the realization that the activation of flexibility at a certain delivery point by a flexibility service provider or aggregator has an impact on the Supplier of the delivery point and the imbalance of its BRP. As such, the Transfer of Energy framework aims to neutralize these impacts on the Supplier and BRP by “transferring the energy” corresponding to the flexibility activation between the flexibility service provider and the Supplier (and their respective BRPs). To this end, the Transfer of Energy Mechanism involves:
- Providing the necessary data to the Supplier and the independent flexibility service provider in order to facilitate the financial compensation for the transferred energy between both parties;
- Performing correction of the perimeters of both BRPs involved in order to transfer the energy corresponding to the flexibility activation between the BRP of the Supplier and the BRP of the flexibility service provider.
