Firm Frequency Response

What is Firm Frequency Response?

Firm Frequency Response is split into 2 types of programme: Dynamic Frequency Response (DFR) and Static Frequency Response (SFR).

DFR is known as a pre-fault programme, as it acts as a preventative measure. SFR is known as a post-fault programme, as it reacts to a frequency trigger being hit.

In order to connect to the most lucrative dynamic programme, sites rely on complex controls, and should be managed by a sophisticated technology platform, such as GridBeyond’s, to provide the most valuable service.

A complex response requires sophisticated technology

Renewable generation is a significant part of our energy landscape. As frequency balance wavers when a generation source fails, stabilising the grid quickly requires an efficient response.

This sub-millisecond response requires the most sophisticated of technology, due to the complexity of the management of the asset’s capabilities. This is why National Grid are willing to pay more for these services.


Fast acting, low risk

Whilst fast acting, our state-of-the-art technology is rooted in engineering expertise, which means that your site flexibility parameters will always be properly identified and protected, eliminating risk to operations.

Boost green credentials

Nothing underpins the integration of renewable energy like fast acting balancing services, and nothing responds faster than DFFR. Boost your sustainability credentials by helping the UK meet its green goals.

Low flexibility? No problem

Our premium technology and world-first hybrid battery and demand network of assets means that even sites with very limited energy flexibility can participate in the fast acting programmes should they wish.

How to participate in 5 simple steps

1. Identify assets & define responses
Our highly qualified engineers will identify your suitable assets and establish the parameters of responses.

2. Bespoke customer journey plan
Our team will develop a bespoke plan, from proposal to installation, third party requirements, and delivery of revenues and savings year after year.

3. Installation
Our asset-first approach means that our highly qualified engineers install and test the solution. All with no capital outlay on your part.

4. Real-time response
Once testing is complete, we’ll connect your site directly to our hybrid battery and demand side network to enable your participation without impact on operations.

5. Reward
Within one month, clients will start receiving payments from the grid, and see savings from their next energy bill.
