Drax Biomass is a subsidiary of Drax Group plc, an innovative energy company that owns and operates the United Kingdom’s largest power station in Selby, North Yorkshire, typically providing approximately 8% of that country’s electricity. The Group has transformed itself into a major biomass-fueled electricity generator through its use of energy industry-leading technology and sustainably sourced compressed wood pellets. This transformation is helping Drax Group deliver the largest decarbonization project in Europe, while continuing to provide the UK with cost effective, low carbon, and reliable renewable power.
The Group employs around 1400 people and also includes: Haven Power, the Group’s retail arm, providing business electricity contracts that are simple, flexible and designed to customers’ specific requirements; and Billington Bioenergy, one of the leading distributors of wood pellets for sustainable heating in the UK.
