Innovation in the power markets


The Green Frog group has a record of spotting opportunities and solving problems in the UK energy markets. Our engineers have designed and built a unique system for delivering gas-fuelled power very quickly and flexibly.

Our development team are continually pushing technology to make the impossible, possible. The holy grail for renewables is energy storage. Traditional battery technology has never been efficient enough for mass power supply but this is changing. We are working in collaboration with Loughborough University through a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) to develop new hybrid energy storage models. We have also prototyped a revolutionary carbon fibre turbine that aims to provide a simple and economic system for utilising waste heat to produce power. These projects will contribute to lowering the nation’s collective carbon footprint.

Recognising their innovative achievements, the founders of Green Frog Power were regional finalists in the 2016 Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year competition.

£100million raised to build new power stations

8th May 2018

Funding secured by Green Frog Power – from Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking, HSBC and NIBC Bank – will finance 11 new gas-fuelled sites to be built across the UK, from Plymouth to Newcastle. Once online, the power stations will help ensure the UK’s energy resilience, allowing renewable sources to contribute more power to the grid.


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.
