We are constantly innovating and developing further ways to enable a zero carbon, lower cost energy future. For this we maintain a pipeline of projects across our business areas.
This page includes information and links to two types of project:
- Options for future development
- Currently being implemented
Power generation and system services
By 2027, we aim to expand our US operations to self-supply at least 80% of the renewable fuel needs of Drax Power Station and in so doing support our aim to reduce the cost of biomass from circa £75/MWh to circa £50/MWh.
Low-cost capacity at our existing three pellet plants of 0.35 million tonnes, announced at our half year results in 2019, will be implemented initially. Up to a further 0.5 million tonnes of capacity located at satellite plants co-located with sawmills is being explored.
B2B energy supply
Meeting our customers’ evolving needs and enabling them to provide system flexibility.
Digitisation of supply will provide us with a scalable, world-class data analytics capability and build upon the opportunity our on-schedule smart meter rollout creates to deliver targeted and tailored customer propositions.
