ASDP (Ancillary Services Despatch System)
Launched

ultimetrics are the first technology provider to successfully launch ASDP STOR (formerly PAS), National Grids new flexible web-based platform.

STOR will cease trading through the existing SRD devices from 31 January 2010. Along with STOR the new system includes support for many other services such as the new service Fast Reserve, which promises to allow greater flexibility than STOR by lowering the required power and runtime requirements, allowing for smaller generators to participate in the market.

Although the requirements to use the ASDP platform are significantly more flexible than the traditional STOR platform, the technological hurdles to adoption are vast. The platform favours older tried-and-tested technologies, such as SOAP, which can make it more difficult to work with newer languages and frameworks. The scale of the implementation itself is considerable, since rather than National Grid providing a single user interface portal for contract declarations, each participant is required to build an interface for this, themselves.

Larger providers will possibly have the resources available to overcome these issues, however, smaller providers will have to partner with traders or aggregators, making their situation less flexible and potentially placing them at a disadvantage in the market. To retain full autonomy you will need to work with an independent technology provider such as ultimetrics who can support and advise on the most effective and cost efficient solution.

ultimetrics are the FIRST and at this moment, the only technology provider who have designed a working, reliable and fully tested interface to support generation owners migrate from SRDs to the new ASDP Platform.
