Biomass conversion programme
- Powering a greener future

Towards a world that runs entirely on green energy

At our bioenergy power plants, we produce electricity and heat using biomass and natural gas, providing clean and reliable energy.

We continuously work to reduce CO2 emissions from electricity and heat production. And by 2023 we will have totally replaced coal as a fuel, with sustainable biomass.


We were among the first to establish biomass-fired power stations and now have one of the world´s largest biomass businesses in Denmark.

Early on we recognized the impact biomass had in helping to create a greener future. As long as biomass is sustainably sourced, it is considered to be a CO2-neutral fuel because it emits the same amount of CO2 from burning, which it absorbs during growth.

Parallel to the conversion of our coal and gas-fired power plants, we lead from the front with pioneering technological innovations which for example turn waste into energy.

We have built, the first of its kind, waste treatment facility in the UK. Using Renescience, an innovative enzyme-based waste treatment technology, the Northwich plant will be a world first bioenergy facility.

Our colleagues say:

"Work here is really exciting, as there are always new challenges to face and new problems to tackle. I am given a lot of freedom to implement new methods and the technologies to solve them.
