How can I connect my renewables with an export limit ?
The Argand GridGEM®
DNO-imposed export constraints do not need to derail or downsize your renewable energy project. GridGEM® will guarantee to your DNO that you will not break their export limit by dynamically controlling solar PV, wind & or CHP energy generation for both static or timed agreements.
How can I connect using Active Network Management ?
The Argand GridGEM®
For Active Network Management (ANM) non-firm connections, Argand’s GridGEM® provides the "client-side" interface to the DNO, enabling you to connect & control your solar PV, wind & or CHP to the Grid in confidence.
How can I generate income from Demand Side Response ?
The Argand GridGEM®
The requirement to manage the Grid in real-time is providing income generation opportunities for clients. Argand’s GridGEM® will aggregate your demand & / or generation & dynamically control the output as required by National Grid or the DNO to drive income generation.
How can I connect & control energy using a private wire ?
The Argand GridGEM®
You may wish to connect a private wire from a generator to a site but have been restricted due to export limits, multiple MPANs & other potential technical constraints. Argand’s GridGEM® PPA enables generation owners to dynamically connect & control the power to the client site whilst maintaining the long-term legal, financial & technical integrity.
How can I optimise my system with batteries & renewables ?
The Argand GridGEM®
Argand’s GridGEM® control & energy flow data is actively monitored in real-time & visualised via the Argand Lenz energy data analytics platform available via the web, tablet, & / or phone. This provides confidence in the control logic & also provides an accounting platform for income generation.
Argand’s GridGEM® will enable you to integrate batteries into your energy network to optimise & balance energy demand, energy generation, tariffs & standing charges.

Robert Chumbley Control Systems Engineer
"ON THE DAY I WAS BORN THE RAIN CAME DOWN. THERE WAS TROUBLE BREWIN' IN MY HOME TOWN. IT WAS THE SEVENTH DAY. I WAS THE SEVENTH SON. AND IT SCARED THE HELL OUT OF EVERYONE"....AND THEN CAME SHUTDOWN.
Fraser Durham Commercial Director
Fraser left his "bubble" in the city and discovered climate change and sustainability whilst studying for his MSc. Since then he's found his passion in using objective data to help drive decisions in managing energy. When not suited and booted you will find him happily bombing around the glorious countryside with his family - plus a little DJ'ing on the side.
Ben Markillie Technical Director
After completing his BSc in Electrical & Mechanical Engineering and spending decades deep in industrial electrical switch gear, Ben teamed up with Fraser to work on smart control solutions in the renewables sector. He loves a good "geek off" with fellow electrical engineers and a spot of diving too.
Claire Limberg Business Architect
Steers the Arband and keeps the cogs turning... love's her kids, dog, friends, work, kayaking, climbing, repeat...
