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 in March 2022 became the most-efficient CCGT in Europe when it entered commercial operations.

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 developing opportunities in carbon capture and hydrogen technology, which, if given government approval, can 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.
