EON pushes ahead with Kingsnorth work

Looks like EON are pressing ahead with their work on Kingsnorth (see Kent on Sunday). They are planning a pipe line to take CO2 from the power station to bury in an oil field in the North Sea.

It would be much more efficient to use cheaper tried and tested technology such as wind rather than trying to build the world's first commercial carbon capture coal power station and hope that it works.

Why do companies favour limited, unrenewable resources over limitless wind?

Anyway, good coverage in the KoS.
