Harmony Energy Storage has secured planning permission from the East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Planning Committee to construct a 49.5 MW battery storage facility in Hull.

Comprised on 17 battery units, the facility will be built on a two acre site on land adjacent to Creyke Beck substation in Cottingham, near Hull.

Based in Yorkshire, Harmony Energy Storage build, own and operate a portfolio of assets across the UK.

Director Peter Kavanagh said: “The energy market and its technology has evolved dramatically since Harmony Energy was founded in 2010.

“Recent developments have been driven by the need to reduce fossil fuel from our energy mix. Over the next three years, developments in energy storage combined with other renewable energy solutions could deliver the lowest cost energy available and will result in creating opportunities in the sector for developers and landowners.

“Because of this, landowners and consultants are increasingly looking at operations, assets and energy in totality to benefit from and deliver smart technology capabilities.”

The company was advised by Carter Jonas’ Infrastructure and Energy team.
