Scotland is investing more and more in clean energy and an offshore wind farm is being set up to electrify a large number of households.
A huge offshore wind farm in Scotland will enable it to electrify around 1 million households. The project is located 27 km from the Angus Coast in the Firth of Forth off Scotland. When the construction of the project is completed, by Seagreen Wind Energy Limited, it is estimated that it will provide clean energy and give an advantage to the use of renewable energy sources.
More and more countries in Europe are investing in clean energy, creating impressive projects that meet part of their energy needs. Scotland’s wind farm is being added to this list. At the same time, two major, key projects are being developed in France and Denmark. The construction of a state-of-the-art offshore wind farm with a total capacity of 497 megawatts is under way in France as part of the promotion of increasingly clean energy sources.
The creation of this park is the third funded offshore wind project in the country which places particular emphasis on the achievement of the European Union’s objectives for the promotion of inexhaustible sources such as wind and sun. The park will be owned by Éolien Maritime France (EMF), a joint venture of EDF Renouvelables France and Enbridge, together with WPD.
According to the design that has been done the project will consist of 71 wind turbines. You only have to consider that during its full operation it is expected to provide on an annual basis electricity capable of meeting the needs of no more than 770,000 people.

An ambitious and impressive Renewable Energy Project is being prepared by Denmark. With the aim of tripling the installed power to offshore wind power it aims for, the northern European country will create two energy islands with wind turbine parks in the Baltic and North Seas.
The project, which includes the exploitation of Bornholm Island and the construction of an artificial island, will cost up to 37 billion euros and is part of the country’s broader plan to reduce emissions of gaseous pollutants by 70% over the next decade.
