LONDON – Uniper said on Wednesday it will end coal-fired power generation at its Ratcliffe power plant in Britain in Sept. 2024 but one unit will close earlier, in Sept. 2022.

“We are taking this opportunity to reduce coal generation on the UK system by closing one of the four 500 megawatt units two years ahead of the government’s announced coal phase-out date,” the company said in statement.
