Carbon Offset

Green Frog Power are pleased to announce that they have committed to being a carbon neutral company in 2016. The Clean Development Mechanism established by the Kyoto Protocol enables governments and private companies to earn carbon credits that can be traded or used to offset the carbon they may generate.

Carbon offsetting has been around for many years and the CDM Gold Standard is recognised as offering schemes that use best practice and are fully audited each year.

As Mark Jones Green Frogs Managing Director explains "Carbon offsetting has had something of a checkered history with some schemes being less than transparent the CDM Gold Standard schemes we are now using offer certainty to the carbon savings our funding generates. As a provider of balancing services to National Grid we perform a vital and important role in keeping the lights on and the system in balance – but this does not mean that we run long hours – it makes sense for us to use this process to make our company carbon neutral – we monitor our usage and offset 110% of the CO2 we generate."

Zero injuries onsite in over 20,000 hours worked

6th February 2018

Our latest 20MW embedded gas plant, at Cattedown Business Park in Plymouth, was completed ahead of time, with zero injuries.

Working closely with Green Frog Connect, the project was completed to tight timescales after winning a capacity market obligation in National Grid’s Early Auction on 3rd February 2017, for delivery by October 2017. Located on a challenging site, the plant occupies a site previously utilised as a tip for building material and a quarry. Despite the tight timescales, the site was generating and available for export from mid-September, and is now available to respond to Capacity Market Warnings issued by National Grid.
