Gresham House partners with Origami and Habitat Energy

Gresham House Energy Storage Fund plc (GRID), has partnered with Origami, an independent energy technology platform for green energy assets, and battery optimiser Habitat Energy Ltd.

Origami is preparing battery assets with a combined capacity of 50MW to participate initially in the Dynamic Containment (DC) and Wholesale Markets, following the discontinuation of National Grid’s Enhanced Frequency Response (EFR) service.

With the discontinuation of EFR, a service in place since late 2016, numerous battery assets throughout the UK require upgrades to participate in the new markets that are replacing it – such as Dynamic Containment (DC), Dynamic regulation (DR) and in the near future, Dynamic Moderation (DM).

Gresham House Energy Storage Fund plc is responding to this shift by using Origami’s platform at its 40MW Glassenbury A and 10MW Cleator projects, to manage the extraction and orchestration of operational data from the assets, enabling their participation in Dynamic Containment for the first time.  The move also future-proofs the assets’ ability to switch seamlessly between other current and emerging ancillary markets.
