In the UK, the 50 MW cap should be raised

The UK Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is considering changes to the planning regime for solar sites over 50MW, as well as energy storage projects

which are also increasing in the country. The government is seeking to facilitate the growth of solar projects larger than 50 MW, which are currently subject to a rigorous and lengthy approval process.
