Due to the bespoke nature of service provision, this service is provided through bilateral negotiations with providers.
National Grid provides FCDM computer equipment, tests and commissions once the Site/Agent has installed the Tripping Relay Equipment and Communication Router. Once the test has been completed, a Site can join the scheme subject to signing the FCDM Ancillary Service Agreement.
Once a provider has agreed terms they are required to declare availability for each Settlement Period on a weekly basis. National Grid then will determine whether to accept this availability.
