Eggborough Power Station
Eggborough Power Station

In the United Kingdom evaluation of projects have reached the second level and a list for remaining projects can be found here.

On the list is one dedicated biomass project the MGT Power Teeside project and six coal power station conversion projects, two units of Drax, three in Eggborough and one in Lynemoth.  The remaining projects on the list are five off shore wind projects and two on shore wind projects.

In a letter to Secretary of State for Energy & Climate Change Edward Davey a number of parliament members expresses grave concerns regarding last minute changes that in fact may discualify Eggborough and jepardize  the £750 million ($1.22 billion) conversion  to move forward. This will end in the clousure of the whole plant by 2015 and the loss of 800 jobs according to the letter.
