The planning application was approved in August 2022 and can be found here on the Sheffield City Council website (Ref. 22/01021/FUL).
The Site is currently an existing yard surface comprising concrete hardstanding, located off Darnall Road in the east of Sheffield.
The facility will provide essential infrastructure and stability services for the National Grid by storing and releasing electrical energy for times of high demand or network stress. It will also facilitate the further deployment of renewable energy within the wider UK electrical generation mix.
