Renewco and Locogen Secure Approval for 39-MW Scottish PV Park with Storage

Scottish renewables developer Renewco Power and its development partner Locogen have secured planning consent to build a 39-MW solar park with battery storage in Fife, Scotland.

The duo said on Wednesday that the GBP-50-million (USD 62.2m/EUR 58.2m) scheme was cleared by the Fife Council following an extensive consultation process that has led to the adoption of numerous biodiversity enhancement measures.

Glenniston Solar Farm will be installed on farmland in the town of Lochgelly, east of Loch Gelly, and is expected to generate enough electricity to meet the annual electricity demand of 18,000 homes. Once commissioned, the site will combine solar power production with sheep grazing.

The project offers a local annual community benefit fund of GBP 23,400.

The Renewco platform was launched in September 2021 and was backed by Corran Capital with cornerstone funding from SSE Plc. The renewables developer now has a 5-GW pipeline consisting of 50 wind, solar, energy storage and hydrogen projects across the UK, Spain, Italy and the US. A large portion of them will be shovel-ready in the next three years.
