Drax is to kickstart the planning process to deploy bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) at Drax Power Station.
Drax has dropped plans to develop any new gas plants, including its plans to build Europe's biggest CCGT plant as it moves to turn its back on fossil fuels.
Last year was Britain’s greenest yet, with renewables generating more power than fossil fuels for the first time according to a new report from Drax Electric Insights.
Drax has sold on Drax Generation Enterprise to VPI Holdings, passing on its four CCGT plants in the process.
A pilot bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) project is to take place in a partnership between Drax and Mistubishi Heavy Industries Engineering (MHI).
Drax has announced its intention to become the first company in the world to be carbon negative by 2030.
