The Spalding Energy Park, adjacent to InterGen’s existing Combined and Open cycle gas plants at Spalding, has planning consent for one of Europe’s largest battery storage projects. The battery development could deliver up to 700MWh of electricity once operational. There is also consent to construct an additional Combined Cycle gas plant at the park, delivering up to 470MW to provide reliable, flexible capacity to power the UK.
Spalding Energy Park received planning consent in January 2018 from the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. The project is carbon capture ready.

In addition to providing much-needed power for the UK, the expansion will bring several local benefits:
- During the construction period, direct and indirect construction jobs will be created including apprenticeships.
- A variety of local supplier and service businesses will be used in support of construction and operations.
- Support for local economic development initiatives and community projects.
