August 12, 2014, London, England – Drax has lost its appeal
to qualify for subsidies for the conversion of a unit at the North Yorkshire
power station from coal to biomass.

 

The U.K. Court of Appeal ruled that the Department of Energy
and Climate Change (DECC) had the right to deny the funding to Drax for the
conversion, which had originally be overturned by the High Court.

to a further appeal from Drax.

 

It is unknown at this time how the decision will affect Drax’s

manufacturers.
