Boom Power has made plans to develop a 200MW+ UK solar and battery facility.
At Thorpe Marsh Power Plant in Doncaster, the firm acquired a 237.5 MWac import and export grid link.
The import capacity enables the batteries to charge when there is extra energy available during off-peak hours, preserving renewable energy that would otherwise be lost.
The project will be evaluated by the Secretary of State for Energy Security and Net Zero since it will be categorised as a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP) due to the size of the connection.
The local area’s land is being investigated, and feasibility studies are being conducted to inform the scheme.
In addition, Boom Power reported that Hull’s Kenley Solar Farm had been granted planning permission and that the judicial time had ended without a response.
Founder of Boom Power, Mark Hogan, said “A crucial part of the strategy to reach net zero by 2050 is to transition to an electricity system with 100% zero-carbon generation and a large proportion of this is to come from renewable energy.”
“I am of firm belief that supporting ambitious action and bold commitments will supercharge the electricity market with a sustainable pathway into long-term energy independence.”
