RWE has unveiled plans for an up to 600MW solar development on land in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, in northern England in the UK.

The Tween Bridge Solar Farm will include battery energy storage on site, and will be located next to the operational Tween Bridge onshore Wind Farm. As such, the solar and storage development will not require additional overhead power lines or other network infrastructure, the company noted.

”Solar in combination with battery storage fits well into RWE’s UK development portfolio, where we already generate 15% of the country’s energy needs,” said Katja Wünschel, CEO onshore wind and solar Europe & Australia of RWE Renewables.

“Our strategy is geared towards sustainability and the vigorous expansion of large-scale solar will be part of these ambitions.”

Having gained a capacity agreement with National Grid and submitted the project’s environmental scoping report to the Planning Inspectorate, RWE will now undertake detailed environmental surveys.
