We are consulting on our proposals for the North Lincolnshire Green Energy Park, including a new Energy Recovery Facility, a plastic recycling facility, hydrogen production and storage, battery storage, carbon capture, storage and utilisation and a district heating and private wire network.
Together, these have the potential to generate enough low-carbon energy for up to 221,000
homes each year and create more than 250 jobs in the local area. Due to the Energy Recovery Facility’s ability to generate more than 50 megawatts of electricity, this project is classified as a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP). The consultation is taking place in line with requirements set by the Planning Act 2008 for projects of this type – it is a ‘statutory’ consultation.
This is the final round of consultation we plan to carry out before we submit an application for a
Development Consent Order (DCO) to the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial
Strategy (BEIS). We currently expect to submit our DCO application in Autumn 2021. This is your
opportunity to express your views on our proposals.
