Boom Power, a developer of renewable energy, has received approval to construct more than 90 MW of solar power in Yorkshire. The Selby District and Kirklees councils have given the developer permission to build the Osgodby (+40MW) and Low Farm (49.9MW) solar farms.
As part of Boom Power’s renewable pipeline, which is currently close to 3 GW in the UK alone, these projects have been approved. Boom Power will start the subsequent stages of the two projects’ construction in the upcoming months in preparation for their connection to the power network. Reportedly, Boom Power has already committed to long-lead-time supply chain commitments, and construction is anticipated to begin in early 2023.
Earlier this month, Equinor reached a final investment decision for its Blandford Road battery storage project in the UK. Blandford Road, located in Dorset, is a 25MW/50MWh battery storage facility and the first to be built as part of a strategic partnership between Equinor and Noriker Power. Equinor purchased a 45 per cent ownership stake in the UK-based Noriker Power in December 2022.
