The Association for Decentralised Energy (ADE) launched its Flex Assure scheme on Wednesday 15 May. It is a new compliance scheme which is designed to make it easier for businesses to participate in flexibility. The ADE said Flex Assure will help businesses to compare the different services offered by aggregators. It is open to all demand-side response (DSR) aggregators and licensed energy suppliers offering DSR services. It sets common standards across the industry, making it easier for industrial and commercial customers to access the revenue these new energy services can provide.
