The proposed Wheelabrator Harewood waste-to-energy facility in Hampshire will convert residual residential, commercial and industrial waste into renewable baseload energy.
The facility will have an energy generating capacity of at least 51 MW (gross) / net of renewable energy which is enough to power the equivalent of over 110,000 homes, diverting around 450,000 tonnes of residual waste a year that would have otherwise have gone to landfill.
The project is classed as a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP). In the UK, such projects need a Development Consent Order (DCO), which is issued by the Secretary of State for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy. The necessary assessment work has already begun.
