The UK's increasing reliance on intermittent renewable energy generation has created demand for flexible standby generation capacity. Alkane's flexible peak generation sites are ideally placed to provide the additional generating capacity to meet these short term generation requirements.
Flexible peak generation builds on Alkane's core skills and provides Alkane with a more diverse gas to power portfolio.
A number of Alkane's sites maximise the value of existing generating capacity and grid connections previously used for Coal Mine Methane power production. Alkane has also developed and commissioned additional flexible peak generation sites and aims to increase its presence in this growing market.
Our flexible peak generation sites generate revenue and fees from providing balancing services to the National Grid and selling power during periods of highest demand. Our sites are referred to as embedded generators within the distribution networks and capture a number of economic benefits known as "embedded benefits".
