Generating 10 percent of the UK's electricity..cleanly, efficiently, reliably

E.ON UK's generation business is involved in every link of the energy chain, producing electricity from a portfolio of world-class power stations and researching new technologies to meet the needs of our customer base.

Generation

Our diverse portfolio of 10 coal, gas and oil-fired power stations generates around 10 percent of the UK's electricity using some of the most advanced technologies in the world.

We also own and operate one of the UK’s leading green generation businesses. Producing enough green power to supply the homes of a city the size of Manchester, our renewables portfolio is made up of 20 operational wind farms, an extensive biomass co-firing programme and one of the UK’s largest dedicated biomass power stations. We’ve started building the world’s largest offshore wind farm, London Array in the Thames Estuary and are developing further renewable projects that could supply the needs of over a million homes.
We’re also one of the biggest names in large-scale Combined Heat and Power, with 13 sites across the UK from Kent to Cumbria.

E.ON Climate and Renewables

In the UK our focus is on wind, both onshore and offshore, dedicated biomass and marine. Currently, we have 18 operational onshore and three offshore wind farms. In 2007 we completed construction on one of the UK’s largest dedicated biomass power stations, the award winning Steven’s Croft in Lockerbie. Robin Rigg, our third and largest offshore wind farm in the UK located in the Solway Firth, became operational in 2010.

We’re partners in the world’s largest offshore wind farms, London Array and have gained planning consent for a 230MW offshore wind farm, Humber Gateway, off the east coast of Yorkshire. We are also looking to develop new projects, further offshore and in deeper water, via The Crown Estate’s Round 3 process.

Our onshore business has a sizeable pipeline of projects being developed which will significantly increase our presence in this area. And in the biomass arena we have received consent for our second biomass power station, Blackburn Meadows in Sheffield, and are exploring further opportunities across the UK.

In 2010, we installed our first wave energy device, the next generation Pelamis Wave Energy Converter at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) in Orkney. We’re the first utility company to test a marine energy device at EMEC, which is the only grid connected marine test facility in Europe. The success of this project should give us the confidence to move on to the next phase of marine energy development, which is to install larger arrays around the UK coastline, like our proposed Orkney Waters Wave Farm projects.

EC&R brings together all activities relating to the operation and development of renewable energy within the E.ON Group. For more information please visit our EC&R site.
