Gore Street Energy Storage Fund plc (ticker: GSF), London's first listed energy storage fund investing in income producing assets in the UK and internationally, is pleased to announce that the Company's 100% owned 9.0MW capacity project at the Port of Tilbury ("Port of Tilbury") is now operational and producing regular income for Gore Street. This now almost doubles the size of Gore Street's operational asset base to 19MW.
The behind-the-meter energy storage project benefits from a diversity of income sources including Triad revenues, a secured Fast Frequency Response (FFR) contract and a capacity market contract.
Port of Tilbury has been completed on schedule. It is using batteries from NEC Energy Solutions and it was developed by Origami Energy Ltd.
In addition, it is anticipated that the Company's 100% owned 10MW project at Lower Road in Essex will also become operational before the end of 2019 in-line with previous guidance.
Alex O'Cinneide, CEO of Gore Street Capital, the Company's investment adviser commented:
"We are delighted that our 9MW project at London's Port of Tilbury is now operational on schedule and directly contributing to the Company's revenue. This almost doubles the size of our operational portfolio to 19MW across three UK projects, one of the most significant operational portfolios of energy storage assets in the country.
We are pleased with both Gore Street's significant pipeline for new acquisitions which currently totals over 1GW across 21 projects and a substantial portfolio of purchased projects in construction, including 160MW across both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. The considerable increase in the size of the Company's portfolio and the strength of these investment pipelines is a clear testament to the recognised leading expertise within the team at Gore Street Capital."
