RenewableUK is responding to the results of today’s auction by National Grid to provide 200 megawatts of power to help balance Britain’s energy network.

This service, called Enhanced Frequency Response, allows National Grid to balance supply and demand on a second-by-second basis.

RenewableUK’s Deputy Chief Executive, Maf Smith, said:

This auction shows that innovative battery storage and renewables are working together to develop a truly 21st century energy system. The UK is one of the countries leading the way in this field. It’s also great to see the owner of one of the largest onshore wind farms in Britain winning a contract to provide this essential power to the National Grid”.
