The work of Limejump has once more been recognised at the annual S&P Platts Global Energy Awards. At last night’s award ceremony, held virtually, Limejump was highly-commended in three categories: Commercial Technology of the Year, Deal of the Year (Strategic) and the Individual Rising Star – Limejump’s Head of Business Development, Genna Boyle.
Catherine Newman, Chief Executive Officer at Limejump: “Recognition at last night’s awards caps another great year for Limejump, despite the challenges of the pandemic. We have invested in our team and developed our capabilities to take full advantage of the business opportunities that exist within the clean energy landscape. For Genna Boyle to be acknowledged as one of the industry’s rising stars is very welcome; she is emerging as a true leader in the field.”
“Being shortlisted in the S&P Platts Global Energy Awards underlines the commercial acumen that we offer to our clients, the career advancement of our people and our advancement of technology, data science and innovation to accelerate the UK’s energy transition. With the active support of Shell, our parent company, we intend to remain at the forefront of change and development within the UK energy market.”
Limejump was highly commended in the following award categories:
Commercial Technology of the Year: for the continued growth of Limejump’s Virtual Power Platform (VPP). Limejump won this award last year (2019).
Deal of the Year (Strategic): for the work of Limejump and Shell Energy Europe to structure a “first of a kind” deal with Penso Power and their investors Hua Neng and CNIC for their 100MW Minety battery storage project (in Wiltshire, UK) – announced in February 2020. The deal saw Shell agree a multi-year power offtake deal to enable the installation of Minety, Europe’s biggest battery, with Limejump optimising Minety’s use through its VPP.
The Minety deal illustrates the growing synergy between Limejump and Shell, and which is further strengthening Limejump’s market offering.
