Quinbrook Breaks Ground On ‘Largest’ Solar And Storage Project In The UK

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Energy Storage News.

These three paragraphs outline the project.

Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners has started construction on Cleve Hill Solar Park, the largest solar and energy storage project in the UK, it claimed.

The specialist global investment manager revealed the Kent-based project, which consists of 373MW of solar and “more than” 150MW of battery energy storage, is expected to be fully completed by the end of 2024.

Once complete, Cleve Hill Solar Park will consist of 880,000 solar panels and battery storage. It was granted development consent by the energy secretary in May 2020.

It is my view, as a Control Engineer, that all solar farms and wind farms should be paired with an appropriately-sized energy storage device.

If this project works out well, we should repeat it on other solar farms of a similar size.
