Enegen support Anesco’s VLP market entry

Anesco is a UK based energy company whose mission is to accelerate the transition to a sustainable, low-carbon future by enabling investment in renewables, storage and energy efficiency.

In 2020 Anesco set up a new business line, Asset Optimisation, the final link in the chain enabling a fully comprehensive solution for UK energy storage spanning development, construction, operation and route to market. Having the option to participate in the UK Balancing Mechanism (BM) was vital for attracting more new clients. The most prudent way of achieving this to meet Anesco’s initial objectives was via the Virtual Lead Party (VLP) route. With this backdrop, the Anesco team was keen to quickly develop a BM capability.

Anesco selected Enegen and their Genstar4 software to manage their BM entry and participation. Genstar4 supports the delivered volume data flows required for the VLP and AMVLP roles and Enegen had already assisted several energy companies through the VLP accreditation process. This included Enegen’s knowledge-based advice around the responses and associated supporting evidence Anesco needed to provide to the assessors, KPMG.

Alan Smallwood, Optimisation Director at Anesco, was keen to share his views on Enegen:

We were impressed with Enegen’s collaborative and focused approach from the first time we spoke to them. Their Genstar4 software is rightly viewed as the UK power trader’s favourite dispatch solution due to its ease of use, reliability and track record. The support we received from the team has been second to none.
