Appointed in 2005, Taylor Keogh supported Stag Energy in its efforts to win planning permission (the UK Government’s approval and local authority consent) for the their Gateway gas storage project off the Cumbrian coast. This was secured in 2008.
Since 2012, we have worked with Stag Energy to deliver Watt Power’s gas-fired power generation projects in England and Wales.
Our work has covered public affairs and PR consultancy at national and local levels, support on written and oral submissions into government, political monitoring and intelligence, and community relations with regard to National Infrastructure DCO applications and sub-50MW planning applications.
• In November 2011, the House of Commons Energy & Climate Change Select Committee urged the UK Government to take action to bring forward new storage as quickly as possible.
• In March 2015 DECC ministers confirmed that capacity and utilisation of UK storage facilities should be reported in the Government’s statutory security of supply report.
• Two OCGT generation projects (299MW) secured DCOs from the Government in 2015, and Stag’s smaller generation projects received local planning approval in 2016 and 2017.
