SSE Thermal will develop the scheme with Aberdeen-headquartered infrastructure firm Kellas Midstream.
SSE Thermal is pursuing energy storage projects in a range of ways. Director of business development Hannah Bronwin sits down with Energy Voice editor Ed Reed to drill into some of the opportunities – and challenges.
SSE (LON:SSE) saw its thermal division – the utilities firm’s gas-fired power plant arm – triple its profits during 2022 as it brought on new generation and enjoyed higher power prices.
The expansion of Peterhead Power Station has come under fire from environmental campaign groups after it emerged both the new and old gas plants could be kept running concurrently in the case it is needed for security of supply.
We may be only a handful of days into the new year but time is already running short.
The Keadby 3 carbon capture power station in the Humber has become the first power and CCS project in the UK to receive planning permission.
Today, we find ourselves in uncertain territory. That uncertainty centres around when and how we will realise the UK’s net zero ambition in the power sector. As it stands, we have a Government commitment for one power station equipped with carbon capture – but to meet our decarbonisation goals, we require greater ambition with clear targets.
ETIDEX 2022 kicked off with its Energy Transition Forum in which key players in the sector discussed the importance of keeping skilled workers in Aberdeen.
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) has secured an engineering and design contract for a gas power and CO2 capture plant planned at Peterhead.
A major engineering and design contract has been awarded for what is expected to become Scotland’s first carbon capture-enabled power plant at Peterhead.
Environmental activists have called on Holyrood to knock back plans for a new low carbon power station, earmarked for Aberdeenshire.
A consortium of Aker Solutions, Doosan Babcock and Siemens Energy have won a major FEED contract for the Keadby CCS project.
The need to invest in our energy infrastructure has never been clearer.
A new report has laid out the potential monetary benefits of a major north-east decarbonisation project.
Energy chiefs have given reassurance that while the pipeline of carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects is currently “modest”, it is “growing rapidly”.
The Climate Change Committee says that carbon capture and storage is “a necessity, not an option” if the UK is to meet its carbon reduction targets.
Plans for new north-east low-carbon power station - that could create and support scores of green jobs - have taken a “major step” forwards.
SSE (LON: SSE) has announced that Catherine Raw will join the energy company as managing director of SSE Thermal.
SSE Thermal and Equinor have formally submitted two low-carbon projects into a competition for UK Government funding.
Equinor (NYSE: EQNR) has today announced that pre-FEED (Front End Engineering and Design) study contracts have been awarded to develop a major low carbon project.
North Sea heavy hitters have raised the virtual curtain on COP26 ahead of the landmark conference getting underway in Scotland next week.
For those working across the energy industry, COP26 has been a hot topic for the last several years. Now, the conference is finally underway and, like everyone reading this, I am hopeful that it will see significant breakthroughs in the fight to tackle climate change globally.
The countdown to COP26 is well and truly upon us. In a few short weeks, world leaders will gather in Glasgow for crucial talks on climate change, with a focus on cutting carbon to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.
