The ‘green’ row over the UK’s largest renewable power plant

The scale of operations in this converted coal plant is huge. It is the largest renewable energy plant in the UK. Wood pellets are imported from the United States on massive ships that take up to 21 days in transit. They are then transported overland by rail, and Drax receives about 17 shipments of wood pellets per day, operating 24 hours a day, six days a week.
