10MW battery consented for Perthshire

Capbal has won planning consent for a 10MW/5000kWh battery unit on the Feddal Estate, Perthshire. It is Capbal’s first storage scheme in Scotland to secure planning consent.

Capbal expects the Braco facility to enter operation in mid-2019.  Its business partner, NEC, will provide four battery units that are similar in design to a shipping container; the facility will be shielded by landscaping works and the surrounding forest on the Feddal Estate.

David Fyffe, founder and chief executive of Capbal Limited said: “We are delighted to have secured our first storage consent in Scotland at Braco. We have other schemes in the pipeline in Scotland and elsewhere in the UK that will provide greater energy security and support the country’s moves towards a low-carbon energy system.”
