Drax is a UK energy business with over 30 years’ generation and supply experience, and a strategy for enabling a zero carbon, lower cost energy future. In December 2019, they were the first business in the world to announce an ambition to become carbon negative by 2030.
Their power station in North Yorkshire is the biggest renewable generator in the UK – supplying 12% of the nation’s renewable power. It’s also the site for their bioenergy carbon capture and storage (BECCS) technology trial that’s already capturing a tonne of carbon emissions every day. This generation unit, combined with hydro and thermal resources, enables Drax to continue to flexibly support the UK energy system’s transition to intermittent wind and solar sources.
As part of Drax Group, Haven Power and Opus Energy supply energy and related services to UK businesses and other organisations – both directly and through energy partners. Working with brokers and consultants, they deliver a range of services. These include fixed and flexible supply contracts, timely and efficient new connections and the latest technologies – including smart meters.
Their Renewables team provides a range of Power Purchase Agreements (and other payment schemes) for customers generating their own power. And Drax’s Energy Services experts deliver end-to-end solutions for electric vehicles and electric assets.
Haven Power supplies renewable electricity to large industrial and commercial organisations, including household names such as Edgbaston Stadium, Gatwick Airport and Thames Water. Opus Energy supplies gas and renewable electricity to over 358,000 premises – including sites belonging to Guinness Partnership, Savills and Specsavers.
