City of Wolverhampton Council Awards e-POWER Two-Year Contract

1 March 2024

We are delighted to announce that after a competitive tendering process City of Wolverhampton Council has appointed e-POWER to manage its export power contract for its EfW site for the next two years. The plant, operating since 1998, is able to incinerate circa 100,000 tonnes of waste a year with an installed capacity of 9.7 MW generating annually approximately 30,000 MWhs which would be about enough electricity to power 7,000 homes for a year.

John Roseblade, director of resident services at City of Wolverhampton Council, said'When we took back over the running of the plant last year, we were determined to ensure we were getting the best price for the electricity exported to the grid from our plant. The tendering process clearly concluded that e-POWER’s competitive and transparent online auction, backed up by a very knowledgeable team operating robust processes was the best way to achieve this.'

Stuart Stephens MD of e-POWER responded'We are so pleased to be working with the team at City of Wolverhampton Council. We’ve had a lot of experience over the years selling the power on our auction platform from large EfW plants and in fact right now we are doing this for six EfW sites amounting to some 100MW of installed capacity.'
