  • Elements Green shines bright in Germany with a massive solar-plus-storage project set to power thousands of homes and millions of people. Watch out for their green energy revolution!

UK solar and storage developer Elements Green has secured grid connection for a 30-MWp solar-plus-storage site in Lower Saxony, Germany. The project in Alfstedt will consist of a solar power generating site capable of meeting the energy needs of over 10,000 households. The site will also include a 400-MW/800-MWh battery energy storage system, one of the largest in Europe, which will provide power to more than 1.7 million people for two hours.

Elements Green is set to begin the public consultation process for the project in late 2024. The company is also working on a development pipeline of over 12 GW and has greenfield development teams in the UK, EU, Australia, and the US.
