through renewable energy
Permission is in place to construct Moray West Offshore Wind Farm in the outer Moray Firth. Once constructed, the project will provide a secure, reliable source of energy as an important step in climate action.
Moray West offers the deployment of a proven technology in a location with a recognised wind resource to deliver a low-cost, low-carbon supply of electricity for up to 1.33 million homes, at a time when the UK urgently needs new generation capacity to maintain a secure, affordable supply of power.
The Moray West wind farm will export clean green energy into the National Grid for the benefit of all UK consumers. The price of energy from offshore wind is now at record low levels helping to deliver value to households and businesses while driving to Net Zero.
The targets are growing leading to rapid growth in the sector. With the most recent UK government contracts for new offshore wind projects set at £41/MWh compared to £92/MWh for new nuclear it is clear that offshore wind is offering great value for consumers as well as decarbonising the economy.
Of Scotland's electricity will be provided
Million tonnes of CO2 emissions saved every year
Million homes throughout the UK could be powered
Kilometers of cabling will be installed across the site
