Power for UK homes
Offshore wind continues to play an increasingly important role in satisfying the UK’s demand for electricity, a demand which is likely to continue to increase as technological advances see a growth in the number of vehicles and vessels powered by electricity.
There are still a number of large offshore wind farm developments along the UK’s eastern seaboard in the planning and consenting or construction phase, so the percentage of the country’s electricity supply generated by offshore wind is anticipated to continue to rise significantly in the years ahead. Since the Sheringham Shoal Offshore Wind Farm was fully commissioned in late 2012, it has made a consistent contribution to the generation of electricity from renewable sources. In 2017 it generated 1.13TWh of electricity and is on track to meet its targets in 2018.
