Renewable Infrastructure Investments

Investing in our future

Energy Storage Fund

By ensuring stable grid frequency, we enable increased usage of renewable energy

Problem

The global power grid is extremely constrained with unstable system frequency, high peak demand gaps, thermal and voltage constraints and unpredictable load and generation cycles.

Solution

Energy storage facilities, utilising battery technology, help system operators maintain stable grid frequency and manage local peak demands.

Impact

Increased use of renewable energy, decreased further investment in the grid, replace existing power generation - faster transition to a low-carbon sustainable economy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your questions, answered

Gore Street Capital (‘GSC’) is an experienced renewable energy and private equity investor. It is the Investment Manager of the publicly listed Gore Street Energy Storage Fund (‘GSF’), which is the first listed pure-play energy storage fund in the UK. Since inception of the Company in 2015, it has increased its assets under management 10-fold to almost £300m, which includes additional assets under management from the Irish Sovereign Wealth Fund.

Energy storage is the capture of energy produced at one time for use at a later time to reduce imbalances between energy demand and energy production. Energy storage battery owners provide the National Grid with grid balancing services supporting them in dealing with system intermittency; mainly caused by the addition of renewable sources of electricity (like wind and solar).

Gore Street Capital at its core is focused on sustainability. We have a strong regard for diversity and an attention to detail.
