Chelveston Renewable Energy Park, set in 750 acres, is the first of its kind facility within the UK. It has been designed to integrate high energy-consuming businesses with large-scale, direct supply renewable energy generation on-site, backed up with the necessary redundancy/reinforcement to ensure continuity of supply.
The Energy Park also includes large-scale energy storage facilities to shift power produced either in sunny or windy conditions into a base load profile to maximise the off grid renewable status of the park’s tenants.
Existing generation provides up to 200GWh from 9 x 2.85MW 125m GE Turbines and 120MWp solar array (500,000 panels), 2 grid connections (80MW export agreement & 26MW import agreement), on site battery storage (20MW) and consent for a Peak Shaving Plant (47MW) and future Hydrogen Production Facility (10MW).
Useful learnings from Prop-Search
“Do your research to find out what those at the leading edge of renewables are doing and how what they are doing can be applied and scaled both up and down. We [Prop-Search] are talking about scaling our innovations upwards, but we mustn’t forget that people have to start somewhere and therefore some of the technologies have to be downscaled to ensure they are achievable and within reach. Once you have those in place, you can then grow on them and improve on them.”
