The 50MW battery storage site is the latest to secure planning permission in Cambridge Power’s growing portfolio, and forms part of the Brookfield 800MW Joint Venture portfolio. It is also the fourth successful application for the Cambridge Power Planning team, in six months.

To date, Cambridge Power has secured planning permission for 356.5MW of BESS Storage with a further 310MW currently submitted for planning and applications for a further 150MW of battery and solar projects currently being prepared.

Neil Waterson, Head of Planning at Cambridge Power says: “We are delighted to secure permission under delegated powers for this 50MW BESS from Peterborough City Council and are grateful for the support of all our consultants in helping to achieve another positive outcome for Cambridge Power. With construction of this site planned to commence in mid-2023 along with a number of other fully Consented projects, it promises to be a busy year for the team.”
