UK developer Elements Green has taken a significant step forward in the development of its Alfstedt project in Lower Saxony, northwest Germany, securing a grid connection confirmation.

Once delivered, the Alfstedt project will feature a 35 MWp solar array alongside a 400 MW/800 MWh battery energy storage system.

Its grid connection approval follows a favorable decision from the Alfstedt municipality, reflecting the project’s alignment with local regulations and community support, the company said.

“We are preparing to bring our vision to life, creating not only a state-of-the-art solar PV and energy storage solution but also making a positive contribution to the local environment. This important milestone is another significant step on our way to becoming a leader in the German PV solar and battery storage market,” said Michael Zimmerman, Elements Green’s head of project delivery for Germany.

Elements Green says it is progressing a development pipeline in excess of 12 GW with greenfield development teams in the UK, EU, Australia, and US.

Most recently, the UK developer announced that it had secured a planning consent for its 360 MW/720 MWh Staythorpe Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) project in the UK. The system will be colocated with a massive 800 MW solar farm.

Earlier in June, Elements Green announced its first project in Australia, lodging a 696 MW solar farm and 1,332 MWh battery energy storage system application with the federal government for assessment.

In January, the company launched public consultations on plans for Great North Road Solar Park in Nottinghamshire, England, with a potential generation capacity of 800 MW and coupled with a 200 MW battery energy storage system. The first round of community consultation ran for six weeks.

Initial consultation on the Alfstedt project will take place in late 2024. Interested parties are encouraged to register their interest in the project via the company website: https://www.elementsgreen.com/

“We would welcome conversations with residents, business owners and community organizations as our plans for the project progress,” the company said in a release.
