EDF wants to build a huge renewable energy park in Neath Port Talbot


Plans for a massive renewable energy park in Neath Port Talbot have been announced which could power more than 40,000 households across the country if given the go ahead. EDF Renewables UK is looking to build Hirfynydd Renewable Energy Park near Crynant and Seven Sisters with an installed capacity of 100 MW – enough to power 40,000 homes with what they describe as ‘green electricity’.

The company say they would achieve this with a mixture of technologies that include a wind farm with up to seven turbines near the valley communities. EDF Renewables UK has recently been carrying out early ecological and other feasibility studies, and have also began planning events for September where they can share information and get feedback from people living locally in the Crynant and Seven Sisters area.

In a statement posted to their website the company described some of the plans they will look to undertake in the near future, saying: “EDF Renewables UK is looking to develop a mix of technologies at the site, including a wind farm of up to seven turbines, a solar farm and battery storage.

“Having a breadth of technologies increases the amount of energy that can be generated at the site in different weather conditions, with battery storage allowing surplus energy to be stored to provide grid balancing services.”
