To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, when her Department plans to announce the results of its competition to fund projects exploring the creation of market platforms for flexibility.
We welcome interest in the FleX Competition which was launched by BEIS in 2019 to support the development and demonstration of innovative solutions to value and trade flexibility in the energy system. Following selection and detailed due diligence of the project teams which will be supported by the FleX Competition, details of winning projects will be formally announced in due course.
In line with the FleX Competition guidance, the projects are due to be completed by end December 2021 with dissemination activities led by the individual project teams also taking place during the project delivery period.
