At four locations we currently operate hard-coal-fired power plants with an installed electrical capacity of around 2,330 MW. Our plants have state-of-the-art technology, are highly efficient with good infrastructure connections. Not depending on the weather, the plants provide energy for the electricity grid in Germany and the Netherlands in a controlled and reliable way. Particularly in view of the currently still volatile power feeds from wind and sun, the power plants make an important contribution to supply and grid stability.
From coal phase-out to CO2-friendly electricity production
By 2030, Onyx Power would like to convert all its sites to the use of sustainable and CO2-friendly fuels. We have already developed individual conversion concepts for individual power plants. We recently initiated the approval process for conversion to the thermal utilisation of waste wood for the Farge power plant. Learn more about our coal phase-out project at the Farge site.
Responsible sourcing of raw materials is a top priority for Onyx Power. To ensure this in our day-to-day business operations, we follow 12 sustainability criteria when purchasing coal. In addition, we are a member of the Better Coal Initiative, an association of European companies to improve the sustainability of supply chains in the coal industry. Further information on the sustainability criteria can be found here.
