RAF airbase to be powered by green energy

RAF Marham is set to become the first military airbase to be powered by green electricity.

Defence Minister Tobias Ellwood made the announcement during a visit to a Norfolk biogas plant, where he officially opened the new site that will provide energy to the airbase. The facility, built by Future Biogas, will generate 4.5 MVA of electricity every day, fuelled by fermented locally grown crops, providing 95 per cent of the F-35 jet base’s energy needs.

Future Biogas is a developer and operator of anaerobic digestion (AD) plants operating plants for John Laing Environmental Assets Group, Downing Corporate Finance, Foresight Group, Oxford Capital and The Ingenious Group, and produces over 400GWh of biogas annually.
