Climate Change

Modern CCGT power stations are the cleanest and most efficient method of fossil fuel power generation. They produce less than half the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) than an equivalent sized coal plant, the sulphur content of natural gas is negligible and emissions of dust are minimal.

As the UK makes the transition to a low carbon economy the use of cleaner, more efficient gas-fired power generation is a key way of reducing the country’s greenhouse gas emissions while maintaining a secure and affordable electricity supply.
