Since the start of the year, Limejump’s power platform has grown 25% and for the first time, since the company was established in 2013, it has passed 1.5GW of capacity.

Limejump’s platform connects and optimises solar, wind, hydro, gas, anaerobic digestion, biomass, CHP energy from waste, batteries, and peaking assets, with a capacity capable of powering the equivalent of 3 million British homes.   
So far this year, the company, a part of Shell’s Renewables & Energy Solutions division, has added more than 400MW of renewable generation to its portfolio, spread across over 200 different sites. These are primarily wind, solar, hydro and anaerobic digestion assets that have joined the Limejump platform via sophisticated Power Purchase Agreements. Limejump have had similar success in building their flexible asset portfolio, adding 70MW of much needed responsive battery storage and peaking assets to their platform. These new assets will be going live later this year and will be optimised in the full suite of wholesale markets and ancillary services.

Catherine Newman, Limejump’s Chief Executive: “We have had a great first half of the year. Our team has worked closely with renewable generators across the UK to enable them to take advantage of volatility in the energy markets. We have improved our operational performance further and our business has continued to grow.”

“Customers are drawn to Limejump’s track-record in combining human trading expertise with intelligent tech-led optimisation and forecasting – maximising revenues for customers of all sizes and tech types. But customers are also excited by our vision, joining us on our mission to optimise 100% renewable energy through a virtual grid in real time.”

Genna Boyle, Limejump’s Head of Renewables and Flexibility commenting on the market this year said: “Since January, the forward power market has grown unlike any other year in recent history, from £58/MWh to £98/MWh. The bullish momentum that we have seen in power prices this year has been predominantly driven by tight gas and carbon markets as well as an ever-changing UK power generation stack.”
