Plans to create a battery storage facility for renewable energy in a North Yorkshire village have been approved, despite objections.

The site at Drax, near Selby, will hold energy produced at Drax Power Station when demand from the National Grid is low.

However, residents had concerns over the loss of agricultural land and the impact on the village.

Selby District Council gave permission for the 0.7 hectare (1.73 acre) site.

Applicant Aura Power said the site, 2,000ft (600m) from the power plant, would store enough energy to supply 26,000 homes.

George Wilyman, from the company, told councillors one of the drawbacks of renewable energy was that electricity generation cannot be controlled to match customer demand.

According to the Local Democracy Reporting Service, he said the batteries would store electricity at times of high generation, releasing it back to the grid as needed.

"It will also significantly assist the UK's ambition to achieve energy security," he added.
