Highlights

Drax Group plc (Drax Group) is a power generation utility. The company generates and sells electricity in the commodity markets. The company owns and operates Drax Power Station, a coal-fired power station through a subsidiary. It also manufactures wood pellets for generation of renewable low-carbon power from sustainable biomass. The company caters to the electricity needs of small to medium sized business customers and provides an alternative to the large multinational power suppliers. It specializes in serving Infrastructure & Communication customers. Drax Group is headquartered in North Yorkshire, the UK.

The strategic intent of the company is to convert Drax Power Station into a biomass-fuelled generating asset and expansion of retail business, Haven Power Limited.

Another generating unit will be converted by mid-2016.
