We are in the process of building rapid-response gas and battery assets to take our operational portfolio over 1GW. This will bring the number of power stations across England and Wales to 50.

UK Power Reserve was awarded 120MW of battery storage in the 2016 Capacity Market Auction making it one of  Europe’s biggest developers of battery storage. We began building the first 60MW in summer 2018 with all three sites due to be completed by the end of 2019.
