Imperative Energy has announced that Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council has granted the Manchester-based company planning consent to build a 17.75MWe biomass fired combined heat and power plant at Pendigo Way in the West Midlands town.

The £70m investment will generate heat and power for a number of local energy users, will created 140 jobs during construction and 25 jobs when the low-carbon centre is complete.
The project will use 130,000 tonnes of local sourced waste wood which is normally landfilled or exported for energy generation in Scandinavia. Also included will be a visitors’ centre which the promoters would use to educate people on the biomass supply chain, the installed technology and benefits of bioenergy in the UK’s energy mix.
