World’s End Solar Park

British Solar Renewables (BSR Energy) has received planning consent for a new 49.99MW solar park near Berkely, Gloucestershire.

World’s End Solar Park will make a positive contribution to net zero aims, providing clean, renewable energy to at least 12,501* homes and will offset approximately 11,702! tonnes of CO2! (Carbon Dioxide) per year. The solar development will also have a significant positive impact on its local environment, delivering combined biodiversity net-gains of over 68% in habitat and hedgerow. Well above the 10% target outlined in the Environment Act.

After a positive consultation period, including a public consultation event, the planning application was submitted in May 2021. During this time BSR Energy continued to carry out further ecological and landscaping works, amend the site layout in order to avoid possible archaeological remains and ensure appropriate flood mitigation was incorporated into the design of the site.

BSR Energy is passionate about playing its part to help the UK make the change towards renewable sources. We have all seen first-hand this summer the impacts that climate change is having, from the hottest day on record being recorded, to official drought declarations. The time to take action and mitigate against any further damage to our planet is now.
