E.ON moving ahead with Bristol biomass plans in UK



E.ON moving ahead with Bristol biomass plans in UK
Energy giant E.ON is on schedule with plans to build a biomass-fired power generation facility in the Royal Portbury Docks at Bristol and will begin construction next year if permission is granted.

The proposed renewable energy plant will have an output of 150MW and will provide enough carbon-neutral electricity to supply more than 200,000 homes.

E.ON will be holding three public exhibitions in the city on June 17th, 18th and 19th in order to share the details of its plans with the community.

It estimates that by burning wood, the plant will be able to save 500,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions a year, while fuel will be transported to the facility by water, further reducing its carbon footprint.

Dr Nilton Chan, project developer on the site, said: "Our plans underline Bristol's reputation as one of the country's leading green areas.

"It's through developments like this that we can help change the way that the UK generates electricity, reducing our carbon emissions and maintaining a secure and affordable energy supply for our customers," he added.

The biomass plant is part of E.ON's efforts to cut the amount of carbon released for each KW of electricity generated by ten percent between 2005 and 2012.

By 2030, the company intends to reduce the carbon intensity of its electricity by 50 percent compared to 1990 levels.
