Pathfinder Clean Energy (PACE), a UK-headquartered international developer of utility scale solar and battery storage projects, has submitted its latest co-located project with a capacity of 49.9MW of solar and an additional 30MW of battery storage.

The proposed ground-mounted scheme, known as Tydd Solar is located in Lincolnshire. It will generate enough power for around 22,300 homes each year, or the CO2 emissions equivalent of removing over 10,000 passenger vehicles from the road. Beyond its contribution to fighting climate change, Tydd Solar will also help reverse biodiversity and habitat loss by providing a Biodiversity Net Gain gain in excess of the 10% that is mandated for new developments. The design of the site allows for continued grazing, further reducing its impact on agricultural land. 

Rob Denman, Managing Director at PACE said, “We are delighted that our latest co-located project – Tydd Solar and ESS – has been submitted into planning. We are committed to developing and constructing flexible clean energy generation which the UK and the wider international market requires. Projects such as Tydd help the UK meet its legally-binding net-zero goals, but also improve energy security and help reduce energy bills at a time when costs are at the front of everyone’s mind. We’ve worked hard to identify a site that is both deliverable and developable per the government’s renewable energy policies and Tydd very clearly meets those criteria’.

‘With PACE Group’s UK and international teams and also our solar and energy storage pipelines increasing then 2024 has started strongly and is all set to continue this way’.
