Flexible generators will play a vital role in the transition to a low carbon future by keeping the lights on. They provide a sustained delivery of electricity to the grid according to system needs and reach full capacity in less than 4 minutes. This means that when other energy sources fail, flexible generators can step in.
STOR’s current portfolio of flexible generation assets is located in the northwest of England, which is at the forefront of the UK hydrogen transition, and the reciprocating engines that have been selected are hydrogen-ready. This means that flexible generators can be green too, another step towards a carbon neutral future.
