Pathfinder Clean Energy (PACE), the UK-headquartered international developer of utility scale solar and battery storage projects, has secured planning permission for its 14MWp Mallows solar and energy storage project, located in the East Lindsey area of Lincolnshire.
The project will provide enough power for the equivalent of 4,600 UK households and will reduce CO2 emissions by 3,300 tonnes annually.
Alex Ross, Director of PACE Developments in the UK said: ‘PACE UK is delighted to achieve another planning success at Mallows. New native hedges and trees, and the local topography, means that the development will be screened from the local village of Sibsey. Additional hedging along the western boundary of the site will ensure it is not seen by the local properties. On this project we also will create a considerable biodiversity net gain of 84%.”
PACE currently has a development pipeline of over 1.5GW of clean energy projects in the UK and 500MW in Canada. PACE recently started construction on its first project in Canada, the 70MWp Joffre project.
Rob Denman, Managing Director of PACE, said: ‘PACE continues to push on and support the requirement for clean energy in the UK. With constant uncertainty in the national and international markets the benefits of low cost clean energy for the future can not be forgotten. Mallows solar and energy storage park will be an important addition to the PACE portfolio and with our recent announcement of our advancement into the green hydrogen market in the UK we are committed to developing and constructing the clean energy generation the UK and the wider international market requires'.
