    Elements Green, a UK developer, has announced that its 360MW Staythorpe battery energy storage system has received planning permission. The project, located in Nottinghamshire, is scheduled to be energized by August 2026 and will have an operational lifespan of 40 years.


    With a peak output of 360MW and a storage capacity of 720MWh, this battery system will be able to power approximately 150,000 households. According to the developer, the project is expected to prevent around 1.8 million tonnes of CO2 emissions over its 40-year duration, which is equivalent to removing 37,500 cars from the road.


    Mark Turner, Elements Green executive chairman, said “Securing planning permission is a remarkable achievement for our team. We are preparing to begin construction and bring our vision to life, creating not only a state-of-the-art energy storage solution but also making a positive contribution to the local environment with additional planting and the creation of a permissive path.”


    “Through its connection into the existing national grid substation at Staythorpe, the project builds on the Trent Valley’s long history of powering the UK.”


    The construction of the project is anticipated to generate 30-50 high-skilled jobs, and a community benefit trust will help offset energy bills for households within the parish.


    Turner continued “This achievement is a testament to the dedication and exceptional expertise of our UK development team. We are excited about the future and the positive impact this project will have on our organisation and the broader community. The UK government has set ambitious and legally binding targets to eliminate carbon emissions by 2050.”


    “More renewable energy is needed to fast-track away from fossil fuels, and energy storage and large-scale solar development are recognised as having an important role in achieving this.”
