Energy company Drax has abandoned plans to build Europe's biggest gas power plant in North Yorkshire, following strong opposition from environmental campaigners.
The company is to no longer install two gas turbines for electricity generation at the site near Selby.
It marks a move away from fossil fuels and towards biomass for the power generator.
Will Gardiner, the company's chief executive, says: "This builds on our decision to end commercial coal generation and the recent sale of our existing gas power stations."
The plant's transformation away from coal started in 2003, when Drax began to burn biomass at the site, mixing it in with coal, which still made up 95% of the fuel.
The company started to convert the coal burners to run on biomass alone in 2013 and it will phase out coal completely by March, ahead of the government's 2025 deadline.
Planning approval for the two gas burners was given in 2019.
Drax is now focusing on burning wood pellets to generate power at the site.
However the technology has critics who question its benefits over other renewable technologies such as wind and solar.
