UK Power Reserve is a market leader with a growing portfolio of flexible electricity assets. We are the UK’s largest independent developer of fast-ramping small-scale gas power plants (693MW in total), the second biggest developer of battery storage (120MW) and a leading player in demand side response (10MW) creating a total portfolio of 823MW.
