Round 2

Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm: Located 20 miles off the coast of Cromer, North Norfolk the project will produce enough electricity to power more than 250,000 UK homes each year.

Galloper Offshore Wind Farm: The project is an up to 504 MW extension to the Greater Gabbard Offshore Wind Farm. Located 27 kilometres (km) off the Suffolk coast Galloper Wind Farm has the potential to supply around 500,000 homes with renewable electricity.

Greater Gabbard: With an installed capacity of 500MW the project is sufficient to supply the domestic demand of 415,000 homes. Greater Gabbardoffshore wind farm is situated approximately 23 km (12 nautical miles) off the Suffolk Coast and comprises two arrays of wind turbines and associated infrastructure adjacent to two shallow sandbanks known as the Inner Gabbard and The Galloper.

Gunfleet Sands Offshore Wind Farm: The project consists of two phases, Gunfleet Sands 1 with 30 turbines and Gunfleet Sands 2 with 18 turbines. Total capacity of Gunfleet Sands Offshore Wind Farm is 172MW corresponding to the consumption of 125,000 British households.

Gwynt y Môr: The project will have an installed capacity of 576MW and will be capable of generating enough energy to meet the average annual energy needs of around 400,000 homes. The project is located in north Wales and offshore in Liverpool Bay and is expected to be operational in 2014.

Humber Gateway offshore wind farm: The project is located 8km off the East Yorkshire coast, just north of the mouth of the river Humber and will have 73 turbines with an installed capacity of up to 219MW. Once complete, the wind farm will be capable of generating enough electricity to power up to 170,000 homes.

Lynn and Inner Dowsing: Two adjacent wind farms built 5km off the Lincolnshire coast, east of Skegness. Together, they have an installed capacity of 194MW and provide enough power to meet the annual demand of more than 130,000 homes, about half the households in Lincolnshire.

Kentish Flats Offshore Wind Farm: Located approximately 8.5 to 13 km north of Herne Bay and Whitstable in Kent the project is comprised of 30 3MW turbines which generate more than 280 GWh of green electricity every year, equivalent to the total annual electricity need of more than 61,000 UK households

Kentish Flats Extension: Adding additional capacity to the existing Kentish Flats Offshore Wind Farm the extension will extend the 30-turbine scheme up to 17 turbines providing an additional maximum installed capacity of up to 51MW.

Lincs: The offshore wind farm is being built 8km off the Lincolnshire coastline, east of Skegness. It lies to the east of the Lynn and Inner Dowsing wind farms and is comprised of 75 3.6MW turbines, giving it a capacity of 270MW

London Array: The largest and arguably the most widely known UK offshore wind farm, its 175 turbines will be capable of generating enough energy to power nearly half a million homes and reduce harmful  CO2 emissions by over 900,000 tonnes a year.

North Hoyle Offshore Wind Farm: Built in 2003 North Hoyle was the UK’s first major offshore wind farm. Comprises 30 wind turbines, each rated at 2 megawatts, the project produces enough clean, green electricity each year to meet the needs of approximately 40,000 homes and is located 4-5 miles off the North Wales coast between Rhyl and Prestatyn.

Ormonde Offshore Wind Farm: Constructed in the Irish Sea, 10km off Barrow-In-Furness, in the north west of the UK,  the wind farm has a maximum installed capacity of 150MW and is capable of supplying enough clean power to meet the equivalent annual electricity demand of 100,000 UK households.

Race Bank Offshore Wind Farm: Planning approval has been given for the construction of a wind farm of up to 580MW which when built will meet the equivalent annual electricity demand of more than 450,000 homes.  At its closest points to shore, the wind farm would be sited about 27km (16.8 miles) from Blakeney Point on the North Norfolk coast and 28km (17.4 miles) from Chapel St Leonards on the Lincolnshire coast.

Rhyl Flats: Located in an area offshore and to the West of Rhyl Flats, on the Eastern end of Constable Bank between Abergele and Rhos-on-Sea the project has an installed capacity of 90MW which is the equivalent annual electricity demand of 61,000 homes.

Robin Rigg: As the first commercial offshore wind farm in Scottish waters, the 60 turbine site began full generation in April 2010 and should provide enough electricity to power approximately 117,000 homes and offset around 230,000 tonnes of CO² emissions each year.

Scroby Sands: One of the UK’s first commercial offshore wind farms, the project was commissioned in 2004 and generates enough energy to supply over 30000 homes, saving the emission of 67802 tonnes of carbon dioxide, nearly 600 tonnes of sulphur dioxide and nearly 200 tonnes of oxides of nitrogen each year.

Sheringham Shoal: Located between 17 to 23 kilometres off the coast of Norfolk in the UK, the first electricity deliveries to the British power grid began in 2011. The wind farm covers an area of about 35 km2. The 88 wind turbines each have a capacity of 3.6 MW. The wind farm generates 1.1 Twh, enough to power 220,000 British homes.

Teeside Offshore Wind Farm: Construction of the offshore wind farm, located between the mouth of the River Tees and Redcar began in 2012. The project consists of 27 turbines will be capable of producing over 60MW of electricity – enough green energy to power up to 40,000 households.

Thanet Offshore Wind Farm: Located approximately 12 km off Foreness Point, the most eastern part of Kent Thanet was completed in 2010 and has a maximum installed capacity of 300MW making it capable of supplying enough clean power to meet the equivalent annual electricity demand of 200,000 UK households.

Triton Knoll: A proposed offshore wind farm located off the east coast of England, approximately 20 miles off the coast of Lincolnshire and 28 miles from the coast of North Norfolk. The exact size of the project is not determined, but if granted consent to go ahead, Triton Knoll could generate up to 1,200 MW of renewable energy. This could provide enough renewable electricity to meet the average needs of up to 850,000 households each year.

Walney 1 & Walney 2 Offshore Wind Farms: Located approximately 15km off Walney Island, Cumbria, in the Irish Sea, both wind farms are comprised of 51 turbines with a total capacity of 367.2MW, the equivalent annual electricity demand for approx. 320,000 UK households.

West of Duddon Sands Offshore Windfarm: Located 14 kilometres southwest of the Barrow-in-Furness coastline. When complete, the windfarm will have the capacity to produce 389 megawatts of clean energy.

Westermost Rough Offshore Wind Farm: Situated 8km off the Yorkshire Coast, north of Hull the project will contain 35 turbines of 6MW capacity. Once operational it is estimated that the Westermost Offshore Wind Farm will be able to provide 240-245MW of electricity, which is enough to fulfil the requirements of approximately 150,000 British households
