Reserve Power Plants

In order to safeguard energy supply in the UK, National Grid have support schemes that allow private sector investment into Reserve Power generation to safeguard energy supply. The underlying technology is a number of gas powered generators (and batteries in some cases where these are charged by these generators) ranging from an installed capacity of 5MW (enough to secure power to around 5,000 homes) to 50MW (enough for around 50,000 homes). The gas powered generators employ extensive sound screening. As gas is used to power them, the emissions are very low. The local nature of their production leads to lower distribution losses than a remote centralised power station so typically reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30% vs. traditional forms of large scale generation.
