Flexcity has successfully achieved its first CRM auction

Flexcity is proud to have been FULLY selected for more than 350MW in theย Eliaย Capacity Remuneration Mechanism (CRM) auction!

The results of this auction demonstrate the ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜๐—ถ๐—ฎ๐—น ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—น๐—ฒ of demand response and storage in realizing a secure, affordable, and clean energy transition. 321MW of demand response and 41MW of batteries were selected in the CRM auction.

๐Ÿ‘Œ A ๐—ฆ๐—˜๐—–๐—จ๐—ฅ๐—˜ Belgian energy system. In times of extreme scarcity, reducing the electric consumption of the industry is equivalent to starting up a gas-fired power plant from an adequacy perspective.

We look forward to coming up with more innovative solutions to guarantee the security of supply in the future Y-1 auction, where an additional 2.5GW will be auctioned.
