Limejump brings hydro into VPP


Limejump, soon to be acquired by Shell, is adding hydro to its virtual power plant (VPP) and will trade its power into wholesale and balancing markets.

The firm has signed a deal with DHG Hydro for the 1.2MW Langwell hydro plant near Ullapool, Scotland. DHG has a lot more hydro assets, noted Limejump.

Access to wholesale markets via the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) is worth around £300,000 for the plant, said Limejump, with additional value to be had from the Balancing Mechanism and ancillary services.
