RWE Renewables in the United Kingdom

RWE is the third largest renewable generator in UK, with a diverse portfolio of onshore wind and offshore wind amounting to over 2.2 gigawatts (GW). Its biggest share of renewable generation is from offshore wind. RWE is ideally positioned in the UK, with a combination of flexible power assets in addition to wind and solar. RWE already generates around 15% of all the electricity generated in the UK, a figure that we expect to grow as we expand our renewables portfolio.

The UK plays a key role in RWE’s strategy to grow its renewables business and to become carbon neutral by 2040. As one of the world's leading players in offshore wind, the company supports the UK Government in achieving its goal of having every single home powered by offshore wind within the next 10 years.

RWE is investing billions of pounds into projects in the UK. This includes the offshore wind farm Triton Knoll (857 MW, RWE share 59%) and the Sofia offshore project (1.4 GW, RWE share 100%) which are both in construction and will expand RWE’s current UK portfolio of nine offshore wind farms.


Agreements for Lease with The Crown Estate

In addition, there is a project development pipeline. RWE has signed Agreements for Lease with The Crown Estate to develop extension projects at four offshore wind farms, Gwynt y Môr, Galloper, Greater Gabbard and Rampion. With a combined RWE pro rata share potentially amounting to around 1.3 GW, this brings a massive boost to the project pipeline and strengthens RWE’s position as one of the world's leading players in offshore wind.

In addition, RWE successfully bid for two new adjacent offshore sites – also on Dogger Bank – with a potential total installed capacity of 3 GW in The Crown Estate's Offshore Wind Round 4 Leasing auction.
