As energy resilience becomes of paramount importance, with disruption to energy supplies and the increasing need for more localised, low carbon energy sources, Yorkshire Energy Park is a compelling proposition aligned to the UK’s net zero ambitions.
Occupiers have access to energy that is generated locally and distributed over a resilient private wire network by Vital Energi. The energy strategy envisages the transition to zero carbon through solar power developments nearby, hydrogen production on-site and/or direct connection to off-shore windfarms.
The energy infrastructure for the offshore windfarms running adjacent to the site also provides a unique opportunity to develop innovative battery storage solutions.
Working with the National Grid, Yorkshire Energy Park is also pioneering a UK first. New technology will make use of spare capacity on the electrical transmission systems for offshore wind farms to provide high-capacity connections at low cost.
