•
Buy at £20 to £30 / MWhr
Sell at £80 to £250 / MWhr
“Load on Demand” services to avoid external curtailment
(30% of wind strike price?)
Direct sales on long term fixed price (+RPI) basis
Consideration for avoided cost of grid upgrade
Ancillary services:
Reactive power management
Voltage regulation
Possible provision of inertia
• Capacity market payments
Other microgrid benefits...
• Additional microgrid revenues allow voluntary
reduction of ROC revenues on single generator
projects – easing price rise pressure
• Security of supply to load customers is improved
• Autonomous operation possible - to ride through
central system blackouts if necessary
