The concept behind the whole idea is amazing, not only will it create more than 900 jobs it will also be expected to cut 32 million tonnes of carbon emissions over its 30 year life span! The plant which is expected to open in July 2018 will be able to generate enough energy to power 600,000 homes running exclusively on biomass energy.
Energy and Climate Change Secretary Ed Davey said: “Our renewable energy plans are driving new green jobs and green growth. By bringing together combined heat and power and biomass plant, MGT estimates that this plant will create 750 construction jobs and 150 permanent jobs on Teesside, as well as cutting Britain’s carbon emissions. Renewable electricity generation has been booming across the UK, and we are seeing record levels of renewable investment. Teesside is now well placed to be a major hub in this future green economy"
