Energy: Power Stations

Volume 714: debated on Tuesday 10 November 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government how many power stations in the United Kingdom they expect to be shut down before 2015 due to the 20,000-hour operating limit in the European Union's large combustion plant directive. [HL6323]

The timing of the closures of the stations opted out of the large combustion plant directive is a commercial matter for the owners, within the limits imposed by the directive.
