E.ON UK built the biggest biomass plant in Scotland, which generates enough electricity to power the equivalent of 70,000 homes.E.ON UK - Steven's Croft
Biomass provides a controllable source of renewable energy. Biomass is a bridging technology into new low carbon energy world.
Further projects are already in planning.
We are planning to develop projects, including small scale dedicated new builds and the conversion and co firing of existing coal assets.
In 2008, we have put into operation the largest dedicated biomass plant in Scotland with a total capacity of 44 MW. It not only reliably provides around 70,000 households with electricity, but also enables us to avoid the production of around 140,000 tonnes of CO2 per year in comparison with the emissions from conventional power plants.
Further we have already started construction of Blackburn Meadows in UK. With a net output of 30 MW it will provide enough energy for around 40,000 homes by converting recycled waste wood into electricity.
All feed stock for our biomass plants comply with our responsible sourcing policy.
