Energy Storage Planning

Our energy team has developed a niche specialism in planning services for energy storage projects and other alternative energy schemes across the UK.

Our expertise in energy storage schemes has helped innovative and fast-growing companies to enter the market, while also supporting larger and more established energy businesses to develop a pipeline of viable sites for energy storage facilities.

Our work in this arena has also helped farmers and landowners to realise value from their land assets in an environmentally conscious way through the development of battery storage infrastructure.

We’ve helped clients in this sector gain planning permission for battery storage schemes of a variety of sizes, all helping to provide the UK energy network with vital grid balancing services.

This has included energy storage schemes on brownfield sites and projects in the green belt that required more detailed environmental and landscape mitigation strategies.

From conducting development appraisals and offering pre-application advice, to managing and submitting planning applications, we can manage the entire process on your behalf.
