"This means squeezing the absolute maximum potential out of every clean energy project that we consider. In the UK and Ireland the perfect blend of clean power from onshore renewables should include a mixture of clean energy technologies.
"The costs for building wind, solar and batteries have reduced considerably in recent years, and they complement each other very well. They perform best at different times of the day and at different times of the year." -- Keith Anderson, ScottishPower, Speaking at COP25 in Madrid.Contact: ScottishPower, Keith Anderson, +44 0 141 614 0000, www.scottishpowerrenewables.com

Scottish Power;s initiative is part of a wider UK Offshore Wind Sector Deal that will see as much as £250 million investment in "building a stronger UK supply chain." The deal will drive the transformation of offshore wind generation, making it an integral part of a low-cost, low-carbon, flexible grid system and boost the productivity and competitiveness of the UK supply chain.
Presently, ScottishPower is constructing a £2.5 billion offshore windfarm in the east of England, seeking approval for a second to begin construction in 2024 and a third in 2025.

Scottish Power scuttled all of its coal plants over the last 10 years and now has 2,700 MW of wind power capacity operating or under construction in the UK. It also has 3,000 MW of projects in the planning stage.
Drax runs the UK's largest power plant near Selby in North Yorkshire and is moving away from coal ahead of a government deadline for an emissions limit on coal plants from 2025.
To date the company has converted four of its six generating units to burn wood pellets.
The Selby plant is believed to be the first bioenergy carbon capture storage (Beccs) project of its type in Europe.
