Plan for renewable energy centre in Kellingley Colliery

The BBC has reported that a £200m renewable energy facility could be built at Kellingley Colliery in North Yorkshire.

The scheme was announced by Peel Environmental, which said it would submit a planning application in early 2013.

The centre would convert up to 280,000 tonnes of non-hazardous waste into energy per year.

If approved, the Southmoor Energy Centre would create up to 38 jobs, the company said.

Peel Environmental said the centre could provide a low-cost, stable energy supply to Kellingley Colliery helping to cut costs.

The plan has been developed in consultation with UK Coal which owns Kellingley.
