The 40 MW Port Clarence Energy Plant is a £160 million biomass power plant, located in Stockton-on-Tees, England and which generates renewable electricity for homes and businesses.
When it enters full commercial operation, the facility will manage 250,000 tonnes of waste wood that is currently disposed of to landfill. It will generate enough electricity to power approximately 75,000 homes, saving approximately 270,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) per annum.
Port Clarence Energy is a long-term, multi-million pound investment into the Teesside economy. It helps meet the country’s renewable energy targets whilst also strengthening the country’s energy security.
Construction of the plant started in 2015. Once fully operational, the plant will directly employ 30 people.
