David Schellingerhout, Managing Director, Glen Avon Growers

Renewables and energy storage developer Anesco is one of the largest battery developers in the UK and made history by installing the first utility scale battery storage unit in the UK.

Flexitricity services

Flexitricity optimises Anesco’s Larport Farm battery from our 24/7 control room in Edinburgh. The battery delivers frequency response services to National Grid, and is also traded in the day ahead and intraday energy markets, and directly with National Grid in the Balancing Mechanism.

Customer benefits

We manage the asset dynamically, keeping agile in our approach to ensure that the battery moves between different services and revenue streams, allowing Anesco to maximize revenue and return for investors.

Flexitricity has been able to secure highly lucrative FFR contracts for the Larport battery in 2019 and Anesco has also benefited from Flexitricity’s market-leading Balancing Mechanism expertise.

Next steps

Energy storage has a growing role to play on the system and the market is set to continue to grow rapidly. Anesco intends to lead the way and is planning on developing more and larger battery storage projects.
