Bolney Green Energy Hub

Welcome

Welcome to our project page providing information on our proposals for a new battery storage facility at land east of Wineham Lane, adjacent to Bolney National Grid.

Our proposals will deliver new battery storage technology, in a key strategic location, to support the energy network in becoming cleaner and greener. The project will be designed sensitively and deliver with it a range of local benefits; this includes the creation of new green jobs during construction and operation, an education centre to teach young people about sustainability and renewable energy, a new publicly accessible perimeter walking route around the entire site, and enhancements to biodiversity.

 

Ahead of submitting planning proposals to Mid Sussex District Council, we would like to tell you more about who we are, what our plans will offer, and how this innovative technology works. We would also like to hear your views on our proposals and how we can ensure that the project meets the needs of the local community.

 

Information on our upcoming public consultation webinars is set out via the ‘Public Consultation’ page, alongside a feedback questionnaire and contact details for the team.

Economic landscape of the renewables sector

‘Energy Station’ does the power of good at Eton College
The installation of an innovative “Energy Station” is helping GRAHAM to reduce its carbon footprint and manage power demands more efficiently at Eton College.
MP calls for massive green private sector investment
Government policy needs to focus on enabling the private private-sector to invest heavily in the green industries of the future such as clean technologies for heating homes and institutions, for the expansion of electric vehicles, expanding renewable energy’s role in transmission and building battery storage capacity to balance the distribution of energy in the aftermath of the corona virus crisis.
Local Authorities lead the way in second-life storage
Local authorities across the country are leading the way in making progress towards the government’s Net Zero target. The important, and potentially profitable, role in delivering green energy is being seized by forward thinking Country Councils in West Sussex and Suffolk in the South of England.
Electricity storage will be exempt from planning regime
The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy has stated it will bring forward secondary legislation to exempt all size storage facilities (except pumped hydro) from the national planning regime in England.
Net-Zero Skills Gap needs urgent action
Transforming the British economy to achieve Net Zero by 2050 will need the spending of billions of pounds in new investment on a green infrastructure.
The CCC says all that’s required is for the government to just go for it.
Today’s progress report – meant to assess the government’s annual progress against climate targets – is unlike any other that precedes it.
Demand for storage surging
The expected rate of return on battery storage facilities is rising sharply as demand is far outpacing supply. In the short-term the imbalances stemming from the fall off in the demand for electricity stemming from the COVID-19 induced downturn in economic activity is pushing up the utilisation of off grid batteries.
The Covid-19 pandemic
Envirotech Energy Solutions has put measures in place to help protect its team, investors, and clients during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Even though our London offices are currently closed, it’s still very much business as usual!
Battery Storage now competitive with gas plants for peak loads
New data just published by BloombergNEF illustrates that the achievable levelised cost of electricity (LCOE) for battery energy storage means that “new-build batteries can be competitive on cost with gas peaker plants.”
Committee on Climate Change calls for a green recovery
The Committee on Climate Change, CCC, the statutory body set up in 2008 to provide independent advice to the nations of the United Kingdom on tackling climate change, has written a letter to the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, cced to the Chancellor of the Exchequer, stressing that a green recovery must be a fundamental part of rebuilding the nation following the COVID-19 pandemic.
Britain needs to raise storage capacity tenfold by 2024
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has produced a report 'Greening the Recovery' urging government fiscal policy makers to “green” their response to the current economic crisis caused by the corona virus pandemic.
Bank of England fails to exclude buying fossil fuel assets
The Bank of England is missing out on a crucial opportunity to nudge the British economy further in a green direction through its asset purchasing scheme for corporate bonds.
Pandemic impact underlines the need for more energy storage
The importance of the role which energy storage can play in providing energy security across the power delivery network, has been brought home as households and those business and institutions still operating in Britain are threatened by the risk of power blackouts as a result of the corona virus pandemic.
The Economics of Renewables
Renewable energy is not just the means by which humanity will deal with the existential threat of climate change.
