Eon has applied to the DTI for permission to build two supercritical coal-fired generating units at Kingsnorth Power Station in Kent. This is the full text of Greenpeace's letter to Alistair Darling of the DTI, objecting to the proposal because the new units would perpetuate a highly carbon-intensive and inefficient form of energy generation and would go against government policy on both climate change and energy sources. Greenpeace is demanding an inquiry into the application.
