NGO comments to European Commission investigation in to UK state aid to Drax power plan

In January of this year, the European Commission launched an investigation into whether the UK government’s financial support for Drax to convert part of its coal power plant to operate on biomass breaches the European Union’s rules on state aid.

This document, are detailed comments submitted to the Commission by a  coalition of seven NGOs from Europe and the United States on this state aid investigation. It outlines the dangers posed by allowing Drax's subsidies for the environment and climate, and raises concerns on market distortion.
