Development

SSE Thermal is actively progressing opportunities for decarbonised generation at our existing sites using carbon capture and storage (CCS) and hydrogen solutions. We have committed to not developing any further power stations without a clear route to decarbonisation, in line with our commitment to a net zero future.

We are currently advancing plans for Keadby 3 in the Humber and Peterhead 2 in north-east Scotland, which could become the UK's first decarbonised gas-fired power stations before 2030.

These projects will link into the shared CCS and hydrogen transport and storage infrastructure being developed through projects like Zero Carbon Humber and NECCUS.

Through the early deployment of these essential technologies at our sites, we can help kick-start the wider decarbonisation of key regions across the UK, ensuring a just transition for workers and communities, and maximising the benefits of the green revolution for our industrial heartlands.
