Press release: Landowners who are considering generating or storing energy should act fast before grid capacity runs out. The electrical grid is heavily constrained with some areas having only pockets of capacity remaining. So even where a site has good planning and access attributes, it may not be able to get a grid connection which stops a project in its tracks.
Power scheme and energy storage developers will specialise in a single technology. Watch how an independent approach gets you the most suitable technology, the most suitable scale and the most suitable developer to maximise your opportunities.
Power generation and storage schemes can make a lot of money in ground rent for the few landowners lucky to have them. But capacity on the grid is in short supply and is issued by network operators on a strictly first-come-first served basis. You must act quickly.
To get the best out of any scheme we encourage landowners to be proactive and investigate their energy opportunities. If appropriate, seek permission to connect to the electrical grid before a developer approaches them. Maintaining control throughout the process is key to success.
