Grid Support (Pre-operational)

Our Pre-operational Grid Support portfolio is a collection of seven sites in England, Scotland and Wales providing flexible generation to the grid.

Sites under construction: 7

Wales: 21 MW

England: 28 MW

Scotland: 30 MW

Flexitricity's 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, our assets can ramp up quickly to provide power during peak periods or when intermittent renewable are unable to provide sufficient power to the grid. 

All projects benefit from 15-year fixed index-linked Capacity Market Agreements backed by National Grid. Several sites are connected to the grid network at voltages of up to 11kV or what is commonly called ‘distributed generation’, making them eligible for additional valuable revenue streams.

The pre-operational Grid Support portfolio currently totals 79 MWs, of which 21 MW are in Wales, 28 MW in England and 30 MW in Scotland. These sites will go live in 2022. Generators are supplied by Siemens, MTU, MWM, Jenbacher and CAT and have some of the highest efficiencies available in the market.
