I sit within the commercial team and am responsible for monitoring the performance of our power plants. I also track the UK’s energy market to gather information on the wider trends within the sector. I carry out analysis of National Grid’s Short Term Operating Reserve (STOR) and Fast Reserve electricity generation services because these are important and understanding what is happening to them helps us to optimise our performance.
As part of my role I have to interact with a wide group of UK Power Reserve’s stakeholders including our Operations Team and external companies such as National Grid and Elexon. I enjoy the work as it’s fast paced and dynamic. Also, as the UK’s energy market is constantly changing, it means that no two days are ever the same.
