Connections queue blocked by 62GW of ‘phantom’ projects

The connections queue for the transmission network contains around 62GW of "phantom" projects that are due to be connected by 2029 but still remain in the scoping phase and may not have secured land rights or applied for planning permission. Centrica said these projects account for roughly a fifth of the 371GW of projects in the Transmission Entry Capacity register and more than a half of the 114GW worth of projects due to be connected before 2029.
