Decarbonising thermal energy

For a net zero future

Our vision

To become the leading provider of flexible thermal energy in a net zero world.

In SSE Thermal, we create value for shareholders and society by developing, operating and owning low-carbon energy infrastructure in a sustainable way.

We’re already making significant progress by displacing older, less-efficient assets with cutting-edge infrastructure like our Keadby 2 Power Station in North Lincolnshire, which is expected to become the cleanest and most-efficient CCGT in Europe.

This is in line with the SSE's commitment to reducing the carbon intensity of the electricity we generate by 80% by 2030, from our 2018 baseline.

However, we want to go further. We’re actively exploring opportunities in carbon capture and hydrogen technology, which we believe have the potential to decarbonise thermal generation at our sites including Keadby in the Humber region and Peterhead in the north-east of Scotland.

That’s how we’ll continue to provide the energy needed today, while building a better world of energy for tomorrow.
