Maintaining our competitive edge

 

Green Frog Trading buys our gas and trades out power. The traders focus entirely on maximising the income from our generating assets and minimising the cost of our fuel.

The first annual Capacity Market auction, a key policy of the Electricity Market Reform programme, took place in 2014 with the aim of securing the UK’s electricity supply at the lowest cost to consumers. When governments take this type of action, there are normally knock-on effects within the markets. Our trading analysts study these effects to ensure that in a tightening market, Green Frog Trading keeps us highly competitive.

We offer trading and despatch services to third-party clients.

Key Facts

  • We buy our own gas and sell our own power directly into the market
  • Expert analysts and traders manage our trading desk
  • Competitive real-plant trading based on the best available market data.

Zero injuries onsite in over 20,000 hours worked

6th February 2018

Our latest 20MW embedded gas plant, at Cattedown Business Park in Plymouth, was completed ahead of time, with zero injuries.

Working closely with Green Frog Connect, the project was completed to tight timescales after winning a capacity market obligation in National Grid’s Early Auction on 3rd February 2017, for delivery by October 2017. Located on a challenging site, the plant occupies a site previously utilised as a tip for building material and a quarry. Despite the tight timescales, the site was generating and available for export from mid-September, and is now available to respond to Capacity Market Warnings issued by National Grid.
