Drax Group Sees FY21 Adj. EBITDA Around Top End Of Current Analyst View - Quick Facts

British renewable energy company Drax Group Plc (DRX.L) Wednesday said it expects fiscal 2021 adjusted EBITDA around the top end of current range of analyst expectations.

Will Gardiner, Drax Group CEO, said, "We believe Drax can deliver growth and become a global leader in sustainable biomass and negative emissions and a UK leader in dispatchable, renewable generation. We aim to double our sustainable biomass production capacity by 2030 - creating opportunities to double our sales to Asia and Europe, where demand for biomass is increasing as countries transition away from coal."
