    Elements Green initiates the introduction of an 800-megawatt photovoltaic site in the UK

    Elements Green has commenced the initial phase of community engagement for the Great North Road Solar Park in Nottinghamshire, England, boasting a potential generation capacity of 800 megawatts. The developer is actively soliciting input from communities within the project areas, while also collaborating with local planning authorities, interest groups, and statutory consultees.


    This inaugural consultation phase is set to conclude on Tuesday, February 27, 2024. Elements Green has scheduled a series of both in-person and online exhibition events during this period, offering community members and key stakeholders opportunities to gather more details about the plans and contribute their feedback.


    To facilitate this engagement, Elements Green has organized a total of eight events in the first consultation stage, comprising six in-person gatherings and two online webinars, taking place from January 29 to February 10.


    Project director for Great North Road Solar Park, Mark Noone, commented “Our plans for GNR Solar Park will align with those set by the British Energy Security Strategy, which aims to increase the UK’s solar capacity fivefold by 2035. With an installed capacity of over 1GW DC, GNR Solar Park would contribute 1.5% towards this target.”


    “We want to talk to communities to understand their views and listen to their ideas. Feedback received during Stage One consultation will help us to develop our proposals more thoroughly, and we want to hear from as many members of the community as possible.”


    “Our project website and contact channels continue to be live, and we look forward to meeting the community at our consultation events. We encourage anyone with an interest in our proposals to provide their feedback and take part in our consultation.”


    “We believe that local communities have an important role to play in helping to inform and influence how our proposals for GNR Solar Park evolve. We want to deliver this project responsibly and are committed to consulting as widely and efficiently as possible, working together with residents, businesses and community organisations to improve and enhance our proposals as our plans for the project progress.”


    Because the anticipated generation capacity of GNR Solar Park exceeds 50 megawatts, it falls under the designation of a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP). Consequently, Elements Green intends to apply for a Development Consent Order (DCO) from the Secretary of State for the Department of Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ), and we expect to submit this application in the spring of 2025.
