Program 01: IN ADVANCE

The In Advance program is generally used for planned demand management events. In Advance and Dynamic programs use the same signals but are diferentiated by market context. The concept of the In Advance program is to indicate to the flexibility
supplier that a flexibility event is expected in the future (typically days), and the details of event time and payload will be updated before the event starts. Usually, the event modification message will occur. For example; the evening before the event
is due to start.
