EDPR has won two wind projects in the UK’s fifth renewables auction

EDPR has been strengthened in the United Kingdom with the award of two wind projects in the latest auction. The renewable energy company has won two CfD (contracts for difference) contracts for two farms in Scotland, with a combined capacity of 56 megawatts (MW) over 15 years. These contracts, awarded by the Department of Energy Security and Net Zero, were awarded in the Allocation Round 5 auction.

The energy company will generate electricity for the Scottish grid through the Ben Sca and Lurg Hill projects, which actively contribute to the UK’s goal of accelerating carbon neutrality. They are expected to add more than 203 GWh of clean energy to the grid by 2026.

Since its recent entry into the British market, EDPR has a capacity of 5 MW of onshore wind energy and about 540 MW of wind and solar energy in various phases of development.

The failure of the offshore wind auction

SSE and RWE are the biggest winners in the fifth round of the renewable energy auction in the United Kingdom. In total, 3,700 MW of capacity was delivered, a third of the amount delivered last year.

Despite this reduction in power, the British government celebrated a “record number” of awarded projects, with 95 successful proposals in their bids, compared to 93 submitted last year. phase.

Of this capacity, 1,900 MW corresponds to solar energy and 1,500 MW to onshore wind energy.

It was, however, a failure to achieve the country’s overseas air goals. And the promoters of this technology do not even show their offers, because they assure that the price offered by the government does not reflect the rising costs of the industry, something that hinders wind projects around the world.
