Southmoor Energy Centre

This £200 million energy centre at Kellingley Colliery, North Yorkshire, is expected to produce enough electricity to power around 63,000 homes (26 MW) and was approved by members of North Yorkshire County Council’s planning and regulatory functions committee in June 2015.

Project Details

  • Centre will power around 63,000 homes (26 MW)
  • Situated on brownfield land
  • Will make use of existing industrial land at the colliery
  • Development will create over 400 new jobs

The energy from waste facility will make use of existing industrial land at the colliery and will use residual waste to generate both low carbon electricity and heat, which could be supplied directly to nearby users including local businesses.
