Emaldo® oncourse to be both a BSP and BRP

The following information pertains exclusively to installers in Sweden.

Svenska kraftnät recently made changes to the way that plan to approach opening up the market for new balancing service providers. 

The newly announced changes now makes it mandatory for service providers in grid balancing for Svenska kraftnät, to function both as BSP (Balancing Service Provider) and BRP (Balancing Responsible Party). 

As Emaldo® will function both as a BSP and BRP, neither you as a partner installer or your customer, the owner of an Emaldo® Power Core, will experience any changes in how the Emaldo® Grid Rewards program works. 

We will continue to pay out a monthly compensation of SEK 2.000 to all customers with a connected Emaldo® Power Core system and come May 2024, when Svenska kraftnät opens for third party balancing, we will convert the current monthly compensation with true balancing compensation based on your systems contribution.
