How will the energy be used?
The current plant provides electricity for 72,000 homes. The replacement facility could provide enough power for around 127,000 homes.
As well as putting waste to further use, the new Energy Recovery Facility will provide reliable, decentralised, low-carbon electricity and can support low carbon heat for local heat networks. We are actively looking at diverting some of the energy to warm local homes and businesses via heat networks.
