Flexitricity has partnered with Gresham House Energy Storage Fund to optimise the fund’s 20MW Noriker Staunch project, a mixture of gas generators and lithium ion battery storage based in Gloucester.
The site will be optimised across frequency response services, traded in the day ahead and intraday energy markets, and available to National Grid in the Balancing Mechanism.
The batteries to quickly ramp up and down in order to be able to provide the fast response required for frequency response services, while the gas engines are available to deliver long duration responses.
