Security of Supply
Back up generation or more commonly known BuG is used as an emergency backup supply of electricity to provide power to a business in the event of grid failure. The uptake of businesses installing BuG is driven by concerns around grid instability and the need to protect businesses against the cost of lost product should grid supply fail.
Save cost and earn revenue
Historically used only as an emergency backup supply of electricity, BuG is now also able to earn revenue through Demand Response and Frequency Response programmes. This opportunity to earn revenue has further driven the number of generators installed in the UK with a recent focus on standalone BuG sites used solely for grid balancing mechanisms.
