Battery storage is expected to play an important role in the energy transition, allowing the storage of electrical energy from renewables for later use, and helping to balance grid load. This publication provides guidance covering various aspects of planning a battery storage facility. It provides an overview of battery types, planning regulations in the UK, and information on safety issues that should be considered during planning and risk assessments. It is intended to be concise and reflect current practice and knowledge in this fast-changing sector.

The guidance is intended for:

  • operating companies, to help plan and assess risk, and
  • local authorities, to help them ask the right questions when making planning
    decisions.
