ScottishPower Renewables is transforming East Anglia into a world leader in offshore wind energy. Find out more about our ambitions to develop four projects across the zone we were awarded as part of The Crown Estate’s Round 3 process.
East Anglia Offshore WindfarmsGenerating 100% green energy
ScottishPower Renewables is supporting the transformation of East Anglia into a world leader in offshore wind energy. Creating a source of vital green energy to keep homes, businesses and communities powered, providing energy security and contributing to reaching the UK's net zero targets.
Our four offshore windfarms will deliver a combined capacity of over 3.6GW of energy, supplying over 3.5 million homes with renewable electricity for the next 25 years. Creating a source of vital green energy to keep homes, businesses and communities powered during the climate crisis and beyond and playing a major part in contributing to the UK’s target of meeting Net Zero by 2050
East Anglia Projects
*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.
