Grid Support (Operational)

Flexitricity's operational Grid Support portfolio is a collection of 16 sites in England, Scotland and Wales providing flexible generation to the grid. The first project in the portfolio reached operations in January 2019.

Number of sites: 16

Wales: 21 MW

England: 156 MW

Scotland: 60 MW

Our Grid Support portfolio supports the UK’s transition to net zero by providing flexible energy to the grid when wind or solar power is not available. Using gas reciprocating engines, the Flexitricity's assets can ramp up quickly to provide power during peak periods or when intermittent renewable generating assets are unable to provide sufficient power to the grid.

The operational Grid Support portfolio currently includes 16 sites totaling 217 MWs, of which 21 MW are located in Wales, 156 MW in England and 60 MW in Scotland.

An additional 79 MW is expected to be operational on completion of the full portfolio build out. Generators are supplied by Siemens, MTU, MWM, Jenbacher and CAT and have some of the highest efficiencies available in the market.
