Commissioner Piebalgs visits gasification power plant in the Netherlands

Commissioner Andris Piebalgs will today visit Nuon’s gasification power plant “Willem-Alexander” in Buggenum, Netherlands. The Commissioner will be accompanied by Lambert van Nistelrooij, Member of the European Parliament. The visit takes place as the Commission is preparing a package of proposals on energy and climate change for adoption later this month.
In addition to coal, the Buggenum plant co-fires biomass to produce renewable electricity. Nuon plans to install carbon capture and storage technology to minimise the carbon emissions from coal firing.

“Nuon’s plant in Buggenum demonstrates that in the fight against climate change, it is important to promote both renewable energy and clean coal technology, in particular carbon capture and storage”, said Commissioner Piebalgs.

The Commission’s package to be adopted later in January will include a Directive ensuring that 20% of the EU’s energy needs will be met from renewable sources by 2020, and several initiatives aimed at the promotion of carbon capture and storage.
