The proposed Battery Energy Storage Facility (BESF) would comprise rechargeable battery units stored in containers on site and associated development including unit substations, a 110 kV substation, security fencing, lightning masts and CCTV. A new access would be created along the Doagh Road. The purpose of the facility is to help stabilise the electricity network. It will absorb electricity when a surplus is available and store it for a period of time before releasing it to supply energy back to the system when demand is greater than supply.
A planning application was submitted to Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council in October 2018. The planning application was refused in March 2019 and an appeal has since been submitted.
