Measuring the Potential for a Large-Scale Renewable Energy Project at Salisbury Plains
EDQ is monitoring solar and wind resources at Salisbury Plains for 12 months (from 24 November 2020) to assess the location’s suitability for a large-scale wind and/or solar farm.
Large scale renewable energy at the precinct would be a drawcard for industry, offering cost-effective and clean power.
At Salisbury Plains, the natural wind and solar resources are being measured up to a height of 200 metres by a remote sensing SODAR (Sonic Detection And Ranging) unit installed and operated by Fulcrum3D. This data will help inform the feasibility of a renewable energy project at the site.

This isn’t the first time EDQ has explored large scale renewables on its industrial land. Acciona is leading the development of a large scale solar farm at Aldoga.
