Grid stability partnership launched without CO2 emissions: With a new approach to managing the stability of the grid, Statkraft has joined forces with electrical engineering company GE Power Conversion.

Two rotating stabiliser synchronous machines will be manufactured and installed by GE Power Conversion at Statkraft’s site in Keith in the Northeast of Scotland.

Without generating carbon dioxide emissions, GE’s technology provides a way of replacing traditional thermal plant generation that provides stability services.

As a result providing secure electrical power at a lower cost to consumers, as fossil fuel-powered generation does not need to run, which allows more renewable generation to operate.

Head of Grid Integration, Statkraft UK, Guy Nicholson said: “The rotating stabiliser solution provides a way to replace the inertia provided by traditional thermal plant generation but operating without carbon emissions.”

Head of Networks at National Grid ESO, Julian Leslie said: “This approach is the first of its kind anywhere in the world and is a huge step forward in our ambition to be able to operate the GB electricity system carbon-free by 2025.
