Gazprom Energy today inked a 12 month deal to buy power from a waste-to-energy plant in Scotland. The business energy supplier will buy 10 megawatts of renewable energy from Avondale’s waste landfill site in Polmont, Central Scotland.

Avondale generates energy by harvesting methane gas from its Polmont landfill site which handles roughly 450,000 tonnes of municipal, commercial, industrial and hazardous waste every year.

Andrew Morris, manager of clean energy at Gazprom Energy said: “Avondale is nationally significant player in the waste to energy industry, making this contract an exciting development for our embedded generation portfolio in the UK.”
