ScottishPower has announced a new hybrid technology strategy to maximise onshore renewable energy potential in the UK and Ireland, which will see the company construct solar projects for the first time. To make the most of land resources and optimise connections the grid, ScottishPower intends to add a mixture of solar and battery technology at existing windfarm sites, with the vast majority of future applications for new projects consisting of more than one clean energy technology.

Planning applications have already been submitted to add solar technology to the existing windfarms of Carland Cross in Cornwall, Coal Clough in Lancashire and Coldham in Cambridgeshire. Further applications to add solar to windfarms in Scotland and Ireland are currently being developed, in addition to further solar projects in England.

Of over 1000MW of new onshore wind projects currently being developed by the company, it is anticipated that the vast majority of these sites will also include proposals for solar or batteries, or a mixture of both technologies.
