Wind Energy Generation Records Broken

The UK benefits from approximately 40% of all wind energy in Europe.  RenewablesUK say that statistics from National Grid confirm last year was a record year for wind energy generation, with onshore and offshore wind farms contributing 11% of the UK’s electricity (up from 9.5% in 2014).  More than 30% of UK households are benefitting from wind energy. 

Our Commercial Property Team has been involved in major projects concerning offshore wind farms, as well as smaller on shore schemes, for many years.  Greene & Greene is providing legal support to prestigious wind energy related schemes and demand for expertise in this sector is growing.

If you have an interest in developing a wind farm, large or small, we can support your project and our experienced legal team are on hand to assist with the complex tasks you will encounter.

Greene& Greene act for Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm, off the North Norfolk Coast

Fraser Paskell heads the commercial property team acting for Dudgeon Offshore Wind Limited, a company recently purchased by Statoil and Statkraft; Europe's largest renewable energy producer. 

After the successful partnership developing the ‘Sheringham Shoal’ offshore wind project www.scira.co.uk, Statoil and Statkraft will now work together to develop the Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm, located north of Cromer.   

Fraser builds on 6 years experience, working on the first project for Scira Offshore Energy Limited, bringing a detailed level of understanding and expertise to the Dudgeon development. Fraser's team were involved in the legal work to build the longest underground cable system for offshore wind so far on that first project.  

The Dudgeon Wind Farm is predicted to produce enough electricity, on average, to supply up to 400,000 homes with green electricity; the equivalent of roughly all the homes in Norfolk.  It will save up to 40 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions over its expected 50 year life, and provide more than 0.5% of the UK’s annual electricity needs, making a significant contribution towards the UK’s target of producing at least 20% of its energy needs from renewable sources by 2020.
