Ancillary services to the grid

With a battery in your Ferroamp system, you can make money by contributing flexibility and balance to the electricity grid. This is called ancillary services or flex services. The Ferroamp system can currently be used for the service called FCR-D.

When you register your system for the service, you allow a so-called aggregator to use capacity in your system and quickly charge or unload the battery during a short time interval when the grid needs support.

Ferroamp’s unique solution allows you to continue to use the battery for the property’s needs while it is used for support services. We call it open flexibility.

Varberg Energi is now the first electricity company to offer customers with Ferroamp systems the opportunity to participate in the market for FCR-D through their “Flex battery” service. It will initially be offered to their customers in the entire SE3. Read more under “Frequently asked questions” about who can sign up and how support services work.
