Renewables developer aims for 750MW of energy projects in H1 2024
31 January 2024
Renewable energy developer Queequeg Renewables is set to submit planning permission for more than a dozen renewable energy projects across the UK by the end of June this year.
The new projects, include solar installations, onshore wind, and battery energy storage systems (BESS).
The applications are in addition to a submission the company made for a 40MW BESS facility near Stockport, Greater Manchester late last year.
Mark Roberts, project development director at Queequeg Renewables, said, “Policies such as the 2008 Climate Change Act and the Renewable Energy Roadmap have put in place a regulatory framework that encourages investment in long-term renewable schemes.
“Ongoing advances in solar, wind and battery storage technologies also improve the feasibility and efficiency of proposed projects, which in turn makes them more attractive to investors and planners. And as installation costs for renewables fall and become more competitive versus traditional energy sources, developers can secure funding and gain planning approval for their proposed projects more easily.”
He added that recent changes in distribution and transmission policies by grid operators have removed obstacles to connecting and monetising the energy generated by renewables, while customer demand has risen.
