Industry Visit: Drax - Innovating for a low carbon future

In recent years Drax Power Station has been gradually converted to use sustainably sourced wood pellets instead of coal. In doing so, it has become the single largest source of renewable electricity in the country, generating 16% of the country’s renewable electricity.

This visit will be an opportunity to take a tour around the largest power station in the country and meet with senior members of the Drax team to discuss the opportunities and challenges of operating in a rapidly changing sector.

Lunch will be included.
