Environment Impact Assessment Screening

Assessment and Determination of Planning Application
This is ongoing and we expect to receive a decision in the first quarter of 2024.
Expected during 2026.
The Proposed Development is designed to reinforce the National Grid by providing instantaneous energy balancing services. This is achieved by storing energy produced when demand is low or there is an over-supply, which can be distributed when demand increases.
A significant increase in renewable energy generation is supported by national and local planning policy and relevant material considerations, such as the UK Governments 2050 ‘net zero’ target, which will require a rapid and expanded deployment of zero and low-carbon electricity generation, supported by energy storage, if climate change is to be tackled within our lifetimes.
