An occasional series on demands for Danegeld: and rather monotonous it is too. We've seen requests for increasing the subsidies on: nukes; gas storage; anaerobic digestion; solar power; gas-fired power stations; CCS ...
Now it's Drax that fancies just a leedle bit more subsidy ('moderate uplift' to be precise), this time for burning biomass.
"the company said investing a further £450m to convert Drax to run mostly on biomass was 'dependent on appropriate support' ... Dorothy Thompson, CEO said: 'With a moderate uplift in the proposed support level we could, over time, maximise the potential for producing this low-cost renewable electricity'."
Low cost, eh ? Yes yes, Dorothy, we understand. And - love the euphemisms !
