About Mercia Power Response

Mercia Power Response will develop fast response, local generation able to provide communities with power at times of peak demand or shortfalls in supply. From the Company's headquarters in Nottingham, Managing Director Graham White plans to grow a team over time to help him develop and manage up to 150MW of capacity in the East Midlands and throughout the UK.

The plans also include a high voltage electrical substation, electrical transformers, welfare, office and control kiosks, as well as associated infrastructure. Plans have been submitted for a battery storage facility in Sheffield. Picture: Adobe Stock Battery energy storage systems enable energy from renewables, like solar and wind, to be stored and then released when customers need power most. The development would provide balancing and reserve services to National Grid to help manage the supply and demand of electricity. A planning statement submitted as part of the application said “the transition towards renewable energy will have long term positive environmental, social and economic impacts by reducing dependency on fossil fuels.” The number of workpeople on the development site during construction is expected to vary between five and 15. Whilst there will be no staff permanently based on site once operational, it is anticipated that this facility will directly employ up to one technician and one administrator. The site currently comprises an area of open industrial yard that has remained vacant for some time.
