E on uk power technology and the library team

E.ON UK, Power Technology and the Library Team

  • One of the UK’s Leading Energy Suppliers

  • Second largest electricity generator

  • Second largest distribution network

  • Centre for innovation, energy technologies & Engineering within E.ON UK

  • 280 highly qualified engineers & scientist

  • Work for E.ON UK and a Global portfolio of companies

Power Technology

  • A team of five serving mainly Power Technology

  • Provide traditional library service and access to online information

  • Service has advanced over the last 5years

Our portfolio

Our Portfolio

  • 3 coal fired power stations: Ratcliffe-on-Soar, Ironbridge

    and Kingsnorth

  • Largest coal fired utility in UK (2005) – 4.9GW power

  • Environmental concerns

  • New units at Kingsnorth

  • 5 gas power stations: Connah’s Quay, Cottam

    Development Centre, Enfield, Killingholme and Taylors Lane

  • Gas fired combined heat and power plant: Grain

  • Underground gas storage facility

  • Plus other power plants – wind, hydro and biomass

Clean fossil fuels

Clean Fossil Fuels

  • Technologies which convert coal, gas & oil to energy with reduced emissions of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.

    Existing Plant

  • Low NOx burners fitted to all coal fired power stations to reduce any oxide of nitrogen emissions, which are associated with acid rain

  • All coal used at E.ON sites has a low sulphur content

  • Biomass co-firing projects currently running at all three coal fired stations in the UK.

  • Flue Gas Desulphurisation unit fitted at Ratcliffe-on-Soar which removes 90% of sulphur dioxide from the fumes

Areas of research

Areas of Research

  • Cleaner Coal Combustion - Plant efficiency improvements, advanced coal-fired supercritical boilers, fluidised bed combustion

  • Capture & Storage of Carbon Dioxide - pre & post combustion, capture of and transportation & long-term storage of CO2

  • Innovative Technologies - Integrated gasification Combined cycle, fuel cells, advanced combined cycle gas turbines.

Legislation standards

Legislation & Standards

  • BSI & Foreign Standards

  • BSI Update Journal

  • Legislation – UK, EU
