The Branston Solar PV Extension – Battery Energy Storage System is a 25,000kW energy storage project located in Lincolnshire, England, UK. The rated storage capacity of the project is 50,000kWh.

The project was announced in 2018 and will be commissioned in 2021.

Description

The Branston Solar PV Extension – Battery Energy Storage System is owned by Pegasus Planning Group (100%).

The key applications of the project are renewables capacity firming and renewables energy time shift.

Contractors involved

Pegasus Planning Group is the owner of Branston Solar PV Extension – Battery Energy Storage System.

Additional information

North Kesteven District Council, a local authority in England’s Midlands, has approved a near 50 MW solar farm alongside planning consent for a 50 MWh battery for Pegasus Group , adjacent to an existing 18 MW solar farm. The potential 25 MW/50 MWh battery is not provided for by the approved grid connection and so Pegasus Group will now engage with local distribution network operator Western Power Distribution to see the storage facility utilised.
