Generation

Alkane has unrivalled expertise of gas to power electricity generation, selling electricity through the elctricity network.

Alkane is the established leader in the production of power from Coal Mine Methane.

We also continue to seek out opportunities to maximise the profitability from excess engine and grid capacity in the Power Response market where we use bought in gas or other fuel to generate elecricity at times of peak demand to provide the grid with backup generation capacity.

In December 2014 Alkane was awarded Capacity Mechanism Agreements with the Department of Energy and Climate Change to supply 101MW capacity.  The agreements commence in 2018 for a period of 15 years for 46MW of new plant and one year for 55MW of existing plant and will be met from both Coal Mine Methane and Power Response sites.
