Event description

Description

Drax Group plc is playing a vital role in helping change the way energy is generated, supplied and used as the UK moves to a low carbon future.

In fact, they are responsible for generating 7% of the UK’s electricity. Having successfully upgraded the UK’s biggest power station through innovative engineering, they are now a predominantly biomass-fuelled generator. 70% of the electricity they produce – enough to power Leeds, Manchester, Sheffield and Liverpool – is now made using compressed wood pellets rather than coal.

Our visit will include a tour of the site with the opportunity to ask as many questions as you like! The focus will be on the environmental agenda for Drax, with a focus on carbon. If you have a particular area of interest, just email us in your queries and we can make sure the team is prepared to address your thoughts on the day.

Please note: All safety equipment will be provided, but please ensure you wear flat shoes for the visit to ensure your safety.

We hope you’ll join us to visit one of the most iconic features of our region! Register below to secure your place.
