Brockworth Road Energy Reserve

Brockworth Road Energy Reserve is a proposed battery energy storage system connected into an existing 33kV overhead line.

The project is located on a small parcel of land located east of the junction connecting the M5 and A417, and west of Brockworth Road. The infrastructure to be installed comprises a standalone battery energy storage system, alongside associated infrastructure such as access tracks, secure fencing, and substation buildings.

There will be an approximately 80m long section of buried cable between the battery system and the point of connection into the existing 33kV overhead power line. The point of connection and limited supporting infrastructure is located in a small area to the west of the main system.

To make this project work for all, we are seeking your views on this proposal ahead of submitting a formal planning application to Tewkesbury Borough Council.

This project website will be updated to share the latest news with the local community and facilitate feedback. We will also hold an online public consultation event; the details can be found on this page.
