RWE and E.ON Win UK Offshore Wind Farm Licenses

Two of Germany’s four major utilities, RWE AG and E.ON AG, respectively their subsidiaries, won offshore wind farm licenses off the UK coast.

RWE Npower Renewables, which forms a consortium with SSE Renewables, Statoil and Statskraft, won an offshore license for the Dogger Bank Zone, which has a potential yield of 9 GW. The company also received a license for the Bristol Channel Zone with a potential of 1.5 GW. In case of the latter license, RWE Npower Renewables acts on its own.

E.ON Climate and Renewables UK won a smaller offshore license for the Hastings Zone with a potential of 0.6 GW.

Swedish Vattenfall Vindkraft, a subsidiary of Vattenfall AB, whose German subsidiary Vattenfall Europe AG, is one of the four major German subsidaries, also received a wind farm license.
