Generation - Development Projects
A wind generation portfolio is being actively developed in the UK and Ireland. In addition to the operational wind farms (Barlockhart Moor, Blantyre Muir, Carsington, Crimp, Sober Hill, Scotia/Craigengelt, Flimby and Cairnborrow), we are developing further renewables opportunities.
In addition to its onshore wind portfolio, ENGIE has developed the 5 MW Capel Grange Solar Park. This site, in Kent, is ENGIE’s first ground mounted solar asset in the UK. We are also currently seeking to develop a solar generation portfolio in Ireland.
ENGIE has a 23.3% stake in the Moray East offshore wind farm, which has a 15 year Contract for Difference (CfD) for the delivery of 950 MW of offshore wind generation. The project, to be constructed at a site off the north east coast of Scotland, is due to become operational in 2022.
In May 2019 ENGIE signed a strategic Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with EDP to create a co-controlled 50/50 joint-venture in fixed and floating offshore wind. The new entity will be the exclusive vehicle of investment of EDP, through its subsidiary EDP Renewables (EDPR), and ENGIE for offshore wind opportunities worldwide and will become a global top-5 player in the field, bringing together the industrial expertise and development capacity of both companies.
