STOR contract with National Grid Extended


Renewable Energy Generation Limited, the AIM-quoted UK focused multi-divisional renewables company, is pleased to announce it has successfully extended its contracts with National Grid to provide Short Term Operating Reserve ('STOR') through its existing 26MW bio-power plants in the UK.

STOR allows the UK's National Grid to source reserve power in specified periods to meet demand when greater than forecast, or shortfalls in generation such as during unexpected plant downtime.  REG has extended its contract on 8MW of its bio-power plants for a further12 months until March 2017.  The contract for its 18MW bio-power plant at Whitemoor has been extended by six months to October 2016, allowing for a more flexible contracting strategy across the 2016 winter period for this project.

REG Bio-Power's plants are fuelled by a patented, proprietary bioliquid derived from used cooking oil and so are eligible for support under the Renewables Obligation mechanism.  In addition to the 26MW already operational, REG also has a further 68MW of bio-power capacity at various stages of development.

REG's CEO Andrew Whalley said: "Winning STOR contract extensions further demonstrates the suitability of REG Bio-Power's flexible plant to operate in this critically important market and in-turn provides revenue visibility for the REG Bio-Power division.

"As the UK's energy generation fleet ages and the requirement for STOR increases, we plan to build scale in this part of the business through delivering additional capacity in the coming 18 months.  This is in line with our strategy to operate 300MW of renewable energy projects across our wind, solar and bio-power divisions by 2018."
