The UK's gas-fired power stations give us the flexibility to respond to peaks in electricity demand at the same time as ensuring lower carbon emissions when compared to other fossil-fuelled generation.
E.ON UK believes that gas-fired power stations will play a key role in achieving a lower carbon future for the UK, bridging the gap between the generation capacity of today and tomorrow.
Which is why we've already started work.
In May 2007, work started on a £500m gas-fired combined heat and power station (CHP) at Grain in Kent. The highly efficient plant will be capable of producing enough electricity for around one million homes and ensure a reduction in carbon emissions of up to 350,000 tonnes a year thanks to the recovery of excess heat that would otherwise be lost.
