Harmony Energy has won planning permission for a 49.5MW battery in Salisbury, Wiltshire.
Grid, land rights and planning permission are now all secured, and Harmony said it can move forward with the lithium-ion scheme on land adjacent to Salisbury substation. The battery will offer balancing services to National Grid ESO.
Harmony recently won planning permission for a 99MW scheme at Creyke Beck in Hull.
Pete Grogan, director at Harmony Energy, said: “With grid, land rights and most recently planning permission secured, the Salisbury project is now ‘shovel-ready’. This scheme will connect to the distribution network at 132kV, allowing more intermittent renewable energy from wind and solar projects to be installed onto the grid”.
Harmony Energy has over 500MW of battery energy storage assets construction-ready or in development in the UK.
