Gas Generation Systems

Providing a vital back-up service to your site in the case of disruption to the grid supply, our intelligent gas generation systems can also be used to lowering your requirements during peak times – minimising third-party charges. There may also be opportunities for exporting surplus power to the grid and generate additional revenue.

Additionally, with the new MCPD regulations now in effect, a back-up generation system from Ylem offers a cost-effective answer to the MCPD’s onerous demands for cleaning up emissions from existing diesel-based generation plant.

Gas-fuelled standby and response power systems

Providing a vital back-up service to your site in the case of disruption to the grid supply, sized from 200kW demand, our intelligent gas generation systems can also be used to lowering your requirements during peak times – minimising third-party charges.

Third-party charges


Third-party charges make over 50% of the cost of a commercial electricity supply invoice and these costs are forecast to continue rising in years to come.

During the peak times of the day –  between 4pm and 7pm Monday to Friday – the DUoS charges reach their highest level – with this being at its maximum during peak winter months. Furthermore, the three Triad periods will also have a large impact if electricity is imported during these times.


DUoS Band Charges
DUoS Charging Bands

As the above graphic shows, there can be a huge difference between the Red Band DUoS rate for peak-time electricity and the Green Band. Depending on the region and the time of year, it can be as much as nine times more expensive.


The wholesale cost element of a bill is unavoidable unless a company can generate its own energy, or simply reduce consumption. With many companies having already implemented energy efficiency measures, there’s opportunities for generation – of course depending on a site’s demand.

These third-party charges can, in many cases, be avoided and that’s where Ylem Energy can help ...

How can Ylem's gas generation systems help?


With over three decades’ experience in smart generation, Ylem Energy specialises in delivering fully-financed smart and flexible energy generation systems that can optimise your site’s supply - helping lower energy costs, increasing reliability and even generating new sources of revenue.

How do we do this?


Ylem Energy can design, supply and install an optimal generation system to ensure maximum benefit to meet the requirements of your site.

Providing a vital back-up service to your site in the case of disruption to the grid supply, our intelligent gas generation systems can also be used to lowering your requirements during peak times – minimising third-party charges. There may also be opportunities for exporting surplus power to the grid and generate additional revenue.

Additionally our generation systems offer a cost-effective compliance with the MCPD’s emission limit values.

Applications

Perfect for all types of site where energy supplies are essential, our gas generation systems can deliver benefits. This typically would include (but not limited to):

  • Data centres
  • Healthcare
  • Food and drink
  • Manufacturing
  • Commercial sites.

Hybrid Solution

Where appropriate, we can also introduce our battery energy storage systems to combine the benefits of our gas generation systems with the ability to store energy – maximising the benefits you can enjoy – such as lower costs and increased resilience.

The MCPD – Medium Combustion Plan Directive

The Medium Combustion Plant Directive - or more simply MCPD – is legislation designed to improve air quality for new and existing combustion plant with a thermal input sized between 1MW and 50MW.

The MCPD’s Emissions Limit Values (or ELVs) focus on the concentration levels of sulphur dioxide (SO2), oxides of nitrogen (NOX), and particulates in exhaust gases from affected plant – plus they require monitoring of carbon monoxide levels (CO), but don’t limit it.

This does affect existing diesel generators and onerous emissions abatement requirements mean that with their low NOX and Particulate matter, our gas-fired generation systems are the perfect answer to compliance as their emissions fall within the permitted ELVs and you’ll avoid a costly upgrade bill.

The cost for upgrading an existing diesel generator to comply with MCPD can be significant ...
