We are looking to engage with the local community and as part of our pre-application consultation we are holding 2 live events on the Tuesday 15th of June - 3pm-5pm and Thursday 24th June 5pm-7pm. These will enable people to find out more about the proposal and to provide us with their views. We will be hosting an online live presentation where viewers will be able to ask questions live through the website and provide comments by filling out an online comment form.

Comments and feedback should be made by the 2nd of July 2021. Please use the form below or write to Grieg Templeton, Planning Project Manager via email: gt@ili-energy.com or by post to ILI Group, 33 Bothwell Road, Hamilton ML3 OAS.

Comments made to ILI Group are not formal representations to Angus Council, if we submit a planning application there will be an opportunity to make formal representations on the application to Angus Council.

Questions from the 1st Restenneth Public Event 15th June 2021 3pm to 5.30pm

We expect the built development area of compound, building, hardstanding and entrance to be around 2 acres. In addition, landscaping and rough planted area may represent the same area again. Each site is different and the exact sizes of this development is yet to be determined. The development does not fill the extents of the red line boundary on the planning drawing. The batteries themselves are enclosed in the fenced enclosure but beyond that there is an area of landscaping and an area for a sustainable drainage system (SuDS). The final site area will be noted on the planning application form when this is submitted to Planning and this will be in the public domain.
We have two projects currently under construction. These are both located in Fife and are not yet operational. This is because of the long lead in times for the battery components and the grid connection. It can sometimes be years before the connection is made and the projects are constructed to coincide with that connection. There have however been a number of battery projects developed and operational across the UK including in Scotland. (SUGGEST WE USE THE IMAGES WE SENT TO THE PLANNER FOR BLACKPARK)
Weed and vermin control is not usually a factor that is included in the planning applications. These developments do not produce food waste, or anything else that would attract vermin.
We are aware of another development proposed nearby. However, these two projects are entirely separate and both will be judged on their own merits by the panning authority. We have no connection to the other project, or the companies involved.
Lithium ion batteries are accepted in our homes, workplaces and in our pockets, and increasingly in cars. We cannot eliminate all risk, but it can be reduced to an acceptable level and designed to limit the consequences of an event. This facility will be a fixed installation, designed around safety. The project’s insurers will independently vet the design and operation of the facility. Batteries are transported in a discharged state. Even in the extreme conditions of a fire, it has been shown that the combustion products do not pose a risk to surrounding residents. The facility will be designed to avoid the circumstances that could lead to a fire and for a fire to be safely extinguished should one occur. Exhaustive safety reviews of other sites found a sound basis for managing and mitigating risks.

Grid-scale battery energy storage is a new technology so it is understandable for questions about all aspects to be raised. Note that the total energy stored in the facility would be less than that in a typical small fuel road tanker, and as a fixed installation, the risk levels are more manageable and lower.
