BayWa r.e. acquires Driffield solar and energy storage project

12 Apr 2022

The Driffield project in Yorkshire, England, has been acquired by BayWa’s renewables subsidiary. The initiative includes a 45MW photovoltaic plant and a 30MW energy storage facility near Kingston-Upon-Hull.

Driffield, which has already secured all necessary permits, has been initially developed by Harmony Energy. Construction will begin in late 2022, with activities being carried out until mid-2023.

According to BayWa r.e., this is one of the first locations in the United Kingdom combining photovoltaic production with energy storage. The company, willing to become a leader in the sector, intends to expand its pipeline of co-location projects like Driffield.
