Cory Riverside Energy has submitted an application to the Planning Inspectorate for development consent to construct Riverside Energy Park. The proposals are for an integrated electricity generating station with up to 96 megawatts of electricity capacity (MWe), that will supply low carbon renewable electricity to London.

Cory consulted with key stakeholders about these proposals during 2018 and used the feedback to help inform the development of the proposed Riverside Energy Park. Cory submitted an application for a Development Consent Order (DCO) to the Planning Inspectorate on 16th November 2018. The Inspectorate has 28 days to confirm whether the application meets the standards required to be accepted for examination. If the application is accepted, the application documents will be made available by the Planning Inspectorate on their website.

The application proposes to construct Riverside Energy Park on land to the west of our existing facility located on Norman Road in Belvedere. The proposed Energy Park will generate low carbon renewable electricity for the equivalent of c.140,000 homes.

Our proposed integrated Energy Park includes:

  • an Energy Recovery Facility, which processes non-recyclable waste and generates electricity, heat and recyclable ash
  • Battery Storage, to store electricity and release it when it is needed most
  • Anaerobic Digestion, for local food and green waste, from which we can generate compressed natural gas to power vehicles or even more electricity in addition to a certified fertiliser for improving agricultural land
  • Solar Panels, to harness electricity from the sun
  • Combined Heat and Power infrastructure on our site, which will enable the heat generated at the Energy Park to be supplied via a potential district heating network to c. 10,500 local homes and businesses

The proposed Energy Park would supply its power to the electricity network through a buried cable connection to Littlebrook near Dartford.
