RES has now submitted a planning application for an energy storage system on land south of Pyworthy substation, approximately 1.3km from the village of Pyworthy

RES has now submitted a planning application to Torridge District Council for the Stoneworthy Energy Storage proposal on land south of Pyworthy substation, approximately 1.3 southwest of Pyworthy village. 

Increasing the installed capacity of energy storage is essential to enabling and accelerating the rollout of zero carbon energy to support the England's target of net zero emissions by 2050. Renewable energy technologies can generate electricity intermittently and energy storage technologies support this by playing an important balancing and grid stability role. 

The proposal has also been carefully designed to enhance biodiversity on the site through measures such as the planting of native hedgerow, grassland and wildflower areas.
