Our services for the public sector
Option 1 – Receive reliable long-term rental income
The rapidly changing energy system in the UK is creating significant revenue opportunities – not least for organisations with appropriately sited, under-utilised or lower-value land and property, preferably with some development history.
Such sites can host battery storage or gas genset schemes. Both have low land takes, usually under an acre, but can often command rents of over £100,000 per annum over 15-25 year leases.
Battery storage or gas genset schemes need to connect to the grid. However, available grid capacity is becoming scarce across much of the UK. If you have an opportunity, it is vital you identify it quickly, and take every care to avoid the many pitfalls associated with hosting these utility-scale schemes.

Option 2 – Generate revenues and savings from demand response
Demand side response (DSR) is a scheme that enables businesses and consumers to turn up, turn down or shift their energy use at peak times in exchange for a financial reward. In simple terms, it helps the National Grid manage and balance the electricity system and can convert sites with a costly power demand into lucrative, flexible power sites.
By turning your site’s energy demand up and down, you can get significant revenues from National Grid’s markets that support this system You can increase this reward even further by adding energy storage or gas gensets to your sites “behind-the-meter”. Behind-the-meter storage can also protect your site operations from the financial penalties that can be imposed for using electricity at peak times.
