*Equivalent number of homes powered calculated by: Number of megawatts multiplied by the number of hours in one year (8,766) multiplied by the average load factor for offshore wind (42%, as published within the Digest of United Kingdom Energy Statistics 2021 (average offshore wind load factor for 2020, 2019 and 2018)), divided by the average annual household energy consumption (3.807MWh, as published within ‘Energy Consumption in the UK 2021’) (average electricity demand for 2020, 2019 and 2018)). For the East Anglia Hub, this is calculated by: 2,944MW x 0.42 x 8,766 (hours per year) / 3.807MWh = 2,847,119 homes powered equivalent.
