WELCOME TO EDGE POWER

Edge Power Ltd are independent developers and owners of UK energy generation assets. We specialise in the development of energy projects from conception through to completion. Previously the Edge Power team have developed and constructed over 500 MWs of field scale solar PV, 10 medium scale wind turbines and 2 gas to grid injection AD plants.

OUR VISION

 

  • Suitably located and sensitively designed developments.

 

  • Provide security of electricity supply for UK consumers and businesses.

 

  • Giving long term benefit to local businesses and communities.

 

  • Utilising local labour and businesses wherever possible.

 

  • Decentralise energy production.

WHY

  • The UK is decomissioning coal fired power stations and shifting to low carbon and renewable energy technologies and there has been a delay in new nuclear capacity.
  • The shift is making energy supplies more intermittent and weather dependent, and requires measures to allow electricity to be supplied to the grid in periods of peak demand (winter mornings and evenings).
  • To address this the government has introduced several mechanisms to encourage the development of distributed generation to provide capacity in times of peak demand, when there is a national shortage of generation capacity.
  • The gas generators allow quick response generation to support the grid at times of need.
  • Gas generation is a low carbon source of electricity and can be called upon on very short notice.
  • The local generation will allow support of the network if a large power station goes off line.

PROPOSAL

  • Locate gas fuelled generators to export electricity to the grid during periods of peak demands.
  • The generators will be located within an agricultural style building, housing up to 10 – 14 engines allowing the conversion of mains gas into mains electric, fed into the national grid. A containerised solution is also available for industrial settings.
  • The sites are expected to run for 1500 hours per year, mainly in the winter months for 3 hours in the morning and 3 hours in evening when demand for electrical is at its peak.
  • Edge Power will cover all costs associated with the development and secure all permissions required to construct and operate the plant.
  • The sites will be designed to ensure they do not impact on the wider environment and residential properties.
  • Gas generation is a low carbon source of electricity and can be called upon on very short notice.
  • The local generation will allow support of the network if a large power station goes off line.
