Sleaford Renewable Energy Plant is a straw-fired power station that is planned for Lincolnshire. The project combines the environmental benefits of renewable power generation with more local economic benefits that will put Sleaford at the heart of a new market for the supply of straw.
The project has significant national and regional benefits, as summarised below:
• 40MW renewable energy in base load operation
• Output equivalent to 65,000 homes
• 250,000 tonnes CO2 saved per year
• Ash is recycled for fertiliser
