ENGIE is leading the way in the development of versatile export contracts for the UK’s new gas-to-grid plants. If you run a plant that produces biomethane gas, you could earn a regular income by exporting that gas direct to National Grid. Exporting your waste gas is a far more efficient process than burning it to generate electricity – and payments from the Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) make it an economically viable option.
Access market-reflective prices for your exported gas
To earn income from selling your gas, you will need an export contract with a licensed gas shipper. As a leading business energy supplier, ENGIE has developed a flexible export contract for new gas-to-grid participants which enables you to earn market-reflective prices for your gas.
Simple administration fees - with no penalty charges
All you need to provide is a forecast of your expected output. ENGIE administers the relationship with National Grid and manages all balancing services on your behalf. There are no balancing charges or
penalties for over or under production. You simply pay a monthly administration fee.
Bespoke contracts tailored to your requirements
Your gas export contract will be designed to meet the needs of your business and the output volumes of your plant. You can choose an index-linked contract to earn competitive market rates every day – or a fixed-price contract - so you can budget with certainty.
‘Self-supply’ agreements for added value
If ENGIE is also your gas supplier, we can create innovative ‘netting’ arrangements that give you a better deal for both imported and exported gas – allowing you to effectively ‘self-supply’ your site.
How do you connect your plant to National Grid?
To supply gas to National Grid you will need to install technology to clean, purify and pressurise your gas so it can be injected directly into the network. Tried and tested systems are now readily available. This equipment can be installed on any type of biomethane-generating plant, from sewage treatment works to anaerobic digestion and waste-recycling plants.
