New energy company

Forsa building plans around flexible power

Alan Baker, ForsaTwo green energy firms in Scotland and London have joined forces to develop what they believe will be the next phase in power generation.

Scottish developer 2020 Renewables and London-based Velocita Energy Developments are creating a new fleet of flexible gas generation units combined with energy storage and low cost renewables.

The new business, Forsa Energy, starts with a portfolio of more than 750MW fully-consented onshore wind and energy storage schemes.

Alan Baker, chief executive (pictured), says: “The market is changing so fast it is hard for government and regulators to keep up.

“The recent auction of offshore wind contracts – where costs have more than halved – shows that renewable energy projects will continue to get cheaper as long as there is a market for their power.

“At the same time, storage technologies – including established solutions such as pumped storage – offer new possibilities for how energy can be generated and managed, whilst small-scale decentralised gas generation can deliver flexibility and fast response.”

Forsa Energy’s current portfolio comprises 150 MW of consented and 225MW of advanced development onshore wind and a fully-consented 400MW pumped storage scheme being developed in conjunction with joint venture partner Buccleuch.
