Snetterton Renewable Energy Plant
of green electricity
homes with energy
tons of CO2 a year
We generated first power at our renewable energy plant in Spring 2017, the plant exports 44 Megawatts (MW) of green electricity which is enough to supply 82,000 homes and save over 300,000 tons of polluting CO2 every year. It’s difficult to visualise how much that is, but is similar to the amount of carbon sequestered by over 25,000 acres of forest and creates a saving equal to using nearly 3.5 million gallons of petrol.

What is biomass?
Biomass is biological material from living, or recently living organisms. Scientifically this applies to animal matter as well, however when we talk about biomass for energy generation we always mean plant material. This can be straw, wood, food waste or other energy crops such as miscanthus for example. At Snetterton we will primarily use straw supplemented with Miscanthus, woodchip and OSR.
