Capacity Market Auction 2015

Seven small-scale distributed generation projects, brought forward by Prime Energy, were successful in the 2015 Capacity Market Auction.  Each have secured local planning approval and subject to their raising construction finance, they are targeted to be built in time to meet their Capacity Mechanism commitment in 2019, at the latest.  Each 20 MW project will provide short-run back-up generation to the Grid, at times when electricity demand is at its highest – normally during winter weekday evenings.
