Overview

Since 1982, Peterhead Power Station in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, has played a critical role in keeping the lights on for our homes, businesses and communities. As Scotland’s only flexible gas-fired power station, Peterhead provides essential flexibility to the electricity system, complementing intermittent renewable generation and ensuring security of supply.

Now, as we transition to a cleaner energy future, energy companies SSE Thermal and Equinor are exploring opportunities for decarbonised power generation at Peterhead, developing plans for a new power station at the site equipped with carbon capture technology.

The SSE Thermal team will present a background and update for the project.

Arrival for the presentation is 17:30 for a 18:00 start. Tea, coffee and sandwiches will be served from 17:30.
