Cambridge Power has secured planning permission for a 60MW Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) in Redcote Lane, Leeds.

The storage developer was also able to secure an Autumn 2024 connection date from Northern Power Grid, a much swifter connection time than its 13-year delayed 50MW Newcastle Upon Tyne BESS site.

Granted by Leeds City Council, the approval marks the company’s third successful brownfield rejuvenation project including a 29MW battery storage project in Glasgow and the Newcastle project.

Neil Waterson, head of planning at Cambridge Power, said: “We are thrilled to celebrate this significant milestone for Cambridge Power with the approval of our 10th consecutive planning success in two years.

“This will help to play a pivotal role in transforming the energy landscape by providing reliable, sustainable, and efficient storage capabilities. We are grateful for the support of all our consultants, including Johnson Mowat, Rossi Long, DRaW, Professional Consult and Futures Ecology in helping to achieve another positive outcome for Cambridge Power.”
