  • Yes, we are currently working with Groningen University to research the impact of sharing rewards with local communities through the creation of a Community Fund, governed by a Stakeholder Advisory Panel.
  • We have established a “Centre of Excellence” to help share the benefits and jobs, created, within the Groningen and extended regions. This includes interacting with schools and colleges to understand the impact of clean green energy and how we can help positively educate/support a wider audience.
  • Groningen University and other local/regional Stakeholders are collaborating with local community groups, and other important environmental associations to engage with Corre Energy Advisory Team and Lead Entities.
  • 200 jobs over the period of construction.
  • 35 jobs over the period of the project’s lifespan.
  • We are actively requesting feedback from communities to understand the local environmental elements and flora, and request that you contact our local agent to advise us of your role within the region.
    • Please use the email request form to fully state your involvement and we will refer you to the relevant liaison officer.
  • We have contracted local agency representatives to meet and understand the importance of environmental conditions, to ensure we limit our impact holistically and draw upon local knowledge to help support all communities.
  • This project will invest an estimated €350m during the construction phase of the CAES plant..

Potential for noise shall be studied as part of the design phase along with the necessary mitigations to ensure this plant is as considerate and practicable to the surrounding area. As part of the permitting process CES will be working with the key stakeholders to ensure mitigations against noise pollution are implemented into the project design.  Similarly, with traffic.  Through the design phase CES will investigate the potential impact of traffic, not just from a noise perspective but the overall effect in the construction and operation phase. CES will look at mitigation options as part of the design to minimise the total impact.

Safe decommissioning of the facility and number of options will be considered for alternative uses which can benefit the community

  • The interaction of the plan and the energy market is still being developed with key market stakeholders .
  • EIB loans to support a network of projects to rollout green hydrogen and renewable power projects.

Based on current planning process, we expect construction above ground to commence by 2024.

No, The plant will provide the necessary system services to make renewable power more affordable and more efficient.  We will not be building new solar plants or wind for this project, most of the energy is expected to be imported from new or existing projects planned off shore for the Netherlands.

  • We are always happy to hear from people.
  • Please use the form on the Contact Us page to forward further questions or request to speak to a liaison officer.

Stakeholder engagement Strategy

Working in collaboration with Atmos Study Association and Groningen University, we have established a Stakeholder Engagement Research Project that outlines how we plan to engage with local communities.  Key objectives are to establish the foundations that will help us engage with all stakeholders and support the creation of a Community Fund. This fund will be independently managed by an Advisory Panel, that understands and supports the Province of Groningen and local regions.

CAES Explained ENG

Understanding CAES

CAES Zuidwending, the first large-scale electricity storage facility in the Netherlands located at Zuidwending in the province of Groningen, is being developed by Corre Energy Storage BV. The project will deploy advanced compressed air energy storage (CAES) technology and aims to develop and implement the World’s first 100% renewable CAES solution for integration of renewable energy.
