Projects under development and construction
Keith Greener Grid Park - Energy Storage
We are proposing to install battery storage services at the existing Keith Greener Grid Park.
This webpage will be kept updated as the project develops to keep you informed and to hear your views and ideas.
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.
Studies are ongoing and we will keep the local community updated about the progress of the project. 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?
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
