4MW Gas Peaker project provides flexible low-carbon power to help balance the grid.
Suncredit Energy has successfully completed the testing and commissioning of its 4MW gas to power peaking project near Doncaster, Rossington Power Limited. The project has been generating power since the initial testing phase and is now fully operational and optimised, to deliver secure decentralised power when it is needed most.
The project, funded by Downing, has now transitioned from Suncredit’s construction team to its in-house asset management team who are working closely with optimisation partners, SmartestEnergy, to capture market opportunities as a flexible asset.
Suncredit’s Development Director, John Leith, says, “SmartestEnergy have provided an optimisation strategy to help us secure the maximum value from opportunities in the short-term energy markets. We received the first notification to dispatch at 09:11 on Monday 26th November and ramped up in less than 120 seconds.”
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have been involved in the delivery of this project and look forward to working together in the future.”
“Despite some challenging domestic conditions we remain very optimistic for our portfolio of energy projects both in the UK and internationally.”
Suncredit’s next gas to power peaking project (20MW, near Taunton) is currently under construction and due for delivery in 2019. In response to its continued development success, Suncredit has now increased its peaking construction program for 2019/20 to over 130MW.
Alongside its ongoing work in solar, storage and behind- the- meter solutions in the UK and abroad, this portfolio approach puts Suncredit in an increasingly robust energy generation and asset management position.
