  • Queequeg Renewables to develop 1.3 GW of grid-secured solar and 2 GWh of grid-secured standalone battery projects across the UK
  • The company to soon submit planning applications for the first projects in its 1.3 GW tranche of grid-secured solar projects
  • The solar projects to range between 10 to 50 MW, and will be subsidy-free
  • The 2 GWh battery pipeline to have schemes ranging from 20 to 480 MWh and will deliver capacity and grid balancing services to the grid

Queequeg Renewables announced that it plans to develop 1.3 GW of grid-secured solar and 2 GWh of grid-secured standalone battery projects across the UK.

Towards this, the UK developer is about to submit planning applications for the first projects in its 1.3 GW tranche of grid-secured solar projects. The projects will range between 10 to 50 MW, and will be subsidy-free.

The 2 GWh battery pipeline will have schemes ranging from 20 to 480 MWh and will deliver capacity and grid balancing services to the grid. The planning phase of these projects will begin in the coming months.

All the projects have grid offers and land agreements in place, and will span across England, Scotland and Wales, with the company intending to initially build and operate a number of the assets.

The venture is led by Queequeg founders Gabriella Palla and Daniele Stiglitz, who each brings almost two decades of development experience in Italy, where they have delivered wind, solar and biomass projects with a range of partners.
