Electricity storage: consenting clarity
United Kingdom | 25 February 2019

The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) recently launched a consultation on proposals regarding the consenting of large-scale electricity storage in England. As the current planning system does not distinguish between standalone and co-located storage technologies, storage developers must consider a number of issues to ensure that the electricity storage facility is consented lawfully. The BEIS's proposals provide much needed clarity in this regard.
