Wind projects in the UK

Our strong portfolio of wind energy projects continues to grow in conjunction with the co-location of solar energy projects and battery technology.

We expect on and offshore wind to form the backbone of the UK energy system. By 2030, our projects could be delivering electricity to 5 million UK homes.
