Our flexible thermal generation will support the net zero transition

Flexible and efficient thermal energy will be essential as the UK and Ireland transitions to a low carbon future.

Our assets complement renewable generation, maintain security of supply and provide large-scale generation in a net zero world.

SSE Thermal comprises the business' flexible generation, energy-from-waste and energy storage activities, with over 600 employees across the UK and Ireland.

We are leading the way in decarbonisating gas-fired assets to ensure they’re fit for the future, replacing older, high carbon power stations, which are coming to the end of their life, and providing an alternative to expensive nuclear.

SSE Thermal is currently constructing the 840MW Keadby 2 CCGT in North Lincolnshire, which is expected to become the cleanest and most efficient gas-fired power station in Europe when completed in 2022.

As part of its commitment to a net zero emissions future, the business has a core focus on decarbonising its energy generation and is at the forefront of opportunities in carbon capture, usage and storage (CCS) and hydrogen technology.
