Alkane is a fast growing, independent, UK power generator. The Company operates midsized 'gas to power' electricity plants providing both predictable and fast response capacity to the grid. Alkane has a total of 145 MW of installed generating capacity and an electricity grid capacity of 160 MW.
Alkane's base load operations, where power is generated 24/7, are centred on a portfolio of Coal Mine Methane (CMM) sites. Alkane has the UK's leading portfolio of CMM licenses, enabling the Company to utilise methane gas from abandoned coal mines.
In addition, power response sites are connected to mains natural gas and produce electricity at times of high electrical demand through peak running, or in order to balance the electricity grid through participation in the National Grid's STOR market. Participants in STOR are paid premium rates when called upon by the Grid to meet temporary supply shortages. Alkane now operates 98MW of power response, one of the UK's largest power response businesses, including 26MW under a 15-year off-take contract.
