RWE sees lignite-fired power plants profitable into 2020s despite LCP BREF

S&P Global Platts:

RWE sees its entire fleet of lignite-fired power plants profitable into the 2020s despite a “low three-digit million” euro investment needed to make all units compliant with tighter EU air quality rules from summer 2021, a spokeswoman for the German utility told S&P Global Platts late Monday.

This comes as a report by environmental think tank IEEFA Tuesday called on RWE to drop plans to invest between Eur200-600 million ($230-690 million) to comply with EU air quality guidelines of Nox, Sox, dust and mercury, known as the LCP BREF.
