Consultation on electricity storage launched


The government has launched a consultation that considers the treatment of electricity storage within the planning system.

It is seeking views on a proposal to retain the 50 megawatt (MW) Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects (NSIP) threshold that applies to standalone storage projects.

It also proposes to amend Planning Act 2008 to establish a new NSIP capacity threshold for composite projects, including storage and another form of generation, such that a composite project would only fall under the NSIP regime where either the capacity of the storage element is more than 50MW or the capacity excluding any electricity storage is more than 50MW.
