Pictures of what Sheffield’s future biomass plant will look like have been released by the plant operator E.ON. The renewable energy plant will begin construction at the end of November.

The £120m plant will generate up to 30MW, enough to power 40,000 homes, by converting UK-sourced recycled waste wood into electricity.

Clive Betts, MP for Sheffield South East said: “I am pleased that construction of E.ON’s new biomass renewable energy plant is now due to commence. This is great news for the area and will deliver a much needed boost for local jobs.”
