Climate camp

E.ON operates a 24-hour Press Office and will therefore be available for comment and interview throughout this year's Camp for Climate Action.

Our position
We are respectful of the Camp's right to protest as long as it is done peacefully and within the bounds of the law.

Just as we respect their right to protest, we hope that they will be respectful of our right to operate Kingsnorth power station safely.

'Media centre'
We have hired out the Hoo Village Institute as a meeting point during Climate Camp as access to the power station will be somewhat limited for obvious reasons.

The building is right in the heart of Hoo (see map over) and reasonably close to both the power station and Kent Police's base at the BAE Sports and Social Club in Bell Lane.

It's going to be pretty low key in terms of the technology available but we'll have a team there who can make you a cup of tea or coffee and point you towards any background information that you may need. There's no need to pre-register but we'd be grateful if you could show some form of ID and sign in on arrival.

Location: Hoo Village Institute, 25 Main Road, Hoo St Werburgh, Rochester ME3 9AA

Centre access: Sunday 3 August - 2pm to 6pm, Monday 3 August through to Monday 11 August, 8am to 6pm

For site interviews, your first port of call should be Emily Highmore, who will be at Kingsnorth power station for the duration of climate camp.

Alternatively, please contact Jonathan Smith or speak to one of the staff at the Institute, who will be able to help with any background queries and/or set up interviews.

Emily Highmore, Senior Press Officer on 079 2194 4680
Jonathan Smith, PR and Media Relations Manager on 024 7618 3676

Out of normal working hours please contact our Security team on 024 7642 4000, who will get the duty press officer to call you back as soon as possible.
