Biomass power generation is a sustainable and secure energy choice. Using an abundant, reliable fuel and tried-and-tested technology, biomass power stations can help meet renewable energy targets, cut greenhouse gas emissions, and provide a reliable and secure electricity supply for homes and businesses. Large biomass projects also bring wider social and economic benefits such as ‘green collar’ jobs and regeneration at a local and regional level.
Biomass fuels come from a variety of sustainable sources including sawmill co-products, recycled wood and dedicated energy crops. They can be used to provide energy for a wide range of applications – from domestic heating to large-scale industrial heat and power generation. Wood and other biomass fuels are significant resources which re-absorb carbon as they grow through the process of photosynthesis. As photosynthesis is powered by the sun, biomass is in effect, stored solar energy.
The development of a biomass power station includes a rigorous assessment in order to minimize any potential environmental impacts and maximize its environmental benefits. GTE Power is committed to the highest standards of sustainability and GTE responsible development for all its renewable energy projects.
Drawing on its vast experience in renewable energy development and strong track record in project delivery, GTE Power will bring its considerable engineering, technical, environmental and business development expertise to a sector with huge potential for low-carbon power generation and job creation.
GTE Power has recently embarked on its first large-scale biomass power station developments.
