On Monday 14th January, BEIS published their consultation on proposed changes to planning rules for energy storage projects in England. The consultation documents are available here and the closing date for the consultation is 25th March 2019. Any developers interested in progressing energy storage projects in the future should respond to the consultation.  The key points of discussion are around thresholds for NSIP (currently 50MW) and how energy storage is treated when co-located with other forms of electricity generation.
