Grendon Lakes Battery Storage Facility

As renewable technologies continue to supply an increasing proportion of energy to the grid, the need for battery storage technology at scale across the UK is intensifying.  Due to the intermittent nature of wind and solar power (cloudy or wind-less days), energy storage is critical to maintain a reliable supply of renewable energy to households and businesses.

To help meet the demand, our client, Statera Energy Ltd is developing its portfolio of battery storage facilities and turned to our experts for environmental assessment and management advice to back up a strong planning application. Our sustainability experts also advised on the lifecycle carbon savings that a development of this type unlocks.

battery storage facility with blue sky background

The magnitude of  embodied carbon from construction was reviewed within the context of a whole-life carbon assessment. This found that the operational phase of the project would enable the storage and use of excess renewable electricity in place of electricity supplied by the alternative – peaking plants – resulting in a saving of emissions compared to business-as-usual without the battery storage. It was calculated that the magnitude of this saving allowed construction emissions to be paid back within three years of operation.

Our team also engaged with the local planning authority to agree a bespoke targeted programme of pre-commencement archaeological investigation in order to better understand the presence, nature and date of any archaeological remains within the site. Following this, we will be able to prepare an appropriate strategy to avoid, reduce or offset any impacts that could occur as a result of construction and enable the development to proceed.

Mitigation proposed to limit the development’s impact on the landscape included increased screening of the site through the planting of native species trees and hedgerows.
