English biomass power plant wins approval

Renewable Energy Systems has won approval from the UK government to build a 99.9 MW biomass power plant at Blyth Harbor in Northumberland, northern England.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) said the unit developed by the company’s subsidiary North Blythe Energy Ltd. will generate enough electricity for 170,000 homes a year, the equivalent of all the homes in Northumberland.

“Sustainably sourced biomass has an important role to play as part of a balanced energy mix, enhancing energy security and reducing greenhouse gas emissions,” a DECC spokesperson said in an emailed statement.
