Keith Greener Grid Park - Energy Storage

We are proposing to install battery storage services at the existing Keith Greener Grid Park.

About Keith Greener Grid Park - Energy Storage

Keith Greener Grid Park (GGP) was officially opened in March 2022 and is already helping the UK move towards a zero-carbon electricity network. Our Greener Grid Parks increase the stability of the electricity grid, eliminating the need for fossil fuel-powered plants.

We have identified an opportunity to install a Battery Energy Storage System (BESS). Batteries capture and store energy for future use. They increase the amount of renewable energy consumers can utilise by storing it when demand is low and releasing it when needed the most.

We presented our revised plans at the public exhibition events held between the 27 March and 2 May, which you can view under our project documents.  We want to thank local residents for engaging with us during the exhibition and for your feedback. We are currently considering the feedback and completing our studies before looking to submit our application this Summer.

This website will be kept updated as our plans progress.

Please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page if you have further questions, or get in touch with us to leave a comment or request a callback.


Why do we need Greener Grid Parks?



Project timeline

  • Stage 1: Site Selection

    Extensive research to identify suitable sites. No public engagement is carried out during this time because the site may not pass the criteria required for being suitable for development.

  • Stage 2: Pre-Planning

    We request the view of Moray Council on the level of study required. We contact local elected representatives and consultees.

  • Stage 3: Submit Planning Application, and Await Decision

    An application is submitted to Moray Council, accompanied by a comprehensive Planning Report and Environmental Assessments showing the results of all studies undertaken.  

  • Stage 4: Construction

    If the project is approved, construction typically takes 18 months. Planning conditions are used to manage elements of construction.

  • Stage 5: Operation

    The project is managed by a regionally based maintenance team, and operations are controlled by detailed planning conditions.
