A new initiative on RWE's pathway to carbon neutrality

Pembroke Net Zero Centre - PNZC

Background

RWE has a clear ambition - to be carbon neutral by 2040. Since 2012 in the UK, the company has closed its three coal-fired power stations and two oil-fired stations. On its journey to decarbonisation, the company reduced UK carbon intensity by 34% between 2012 and 2019.

Over the course of 60 years, RWE’s site at Pembroke in south-west Wales has completely transformed: from firstly hosting an oil-fired power station in the 1960s, to transitioning later in the 2010s to a highly efficient natural gas-fired power station that continues to produce the lowest CO2 intensity power of any gas plant in the UK. Looking to the future, RWE’s pathway to carbon neutrality will require wide-scale investment in the decarbonisation technologies. These will be brought together in a new initiative: ‘The Pembroke Net Zero Centre’.

RWE is a world leader in renewables, a market leader in the development of offshore wind and a key driver of the global energy transition. In turn, Pembroke is looking to continue its transformation as part of a decarbonisation hub under the title of the PNZC, linking-up with new innovative technologies needed for a low carbon future, including hydrogen production, Carbon Capture and Storage and floating offshore wind. The PNZC will bring together all areas of the company’s decarbonisation expertise, including innovation, offshore wind, power engineering, trading and the development/operation of highly technical plants.

Located all in one place, it demonstrates RWE’s commitment to the decarbonisation of Wales and the UK.

PNZC will develop and implement three distinctive pillars: 1) Decarbonisation of Pembroke Power Station, including CCS and initial Hydrogen feasibility studies; 2) Green Hydrogen production, including feasibility studies for the development of an electrolyser on the Pembroke site; 3) Floating Offshore Wind development in the Celtic Sea.

The initiative is based at Pembroke Power Station and draws on a dedicated team of experts. They will work with hundreds of technicians, planners and engineers across RWE’s UK and international businesses, looking at the deployment of state-of-the-art technologies to help decarbonise South Wales and support Wales and the UK to reach net zero.

The deployment of the PNZC will help unlock the route to Net Zero in South Wales, helping support the future of existing industries, businesses and jobs. This initiative, alongside the South Wales Industrial Cluster activities, will attract new industries and businesses, further developing the production and use of hydrogen for home heating, power generation and transport across the region.
