The world needs more energy, and in future ever more of its energy supply will need to be obtained from renewable resources such as hydropower, waves and wind. With around 40% of the EU’s entire wind resources available in British waters, it makes sense to harness the wind.

The 317MW Sheringham Shoal Offshore Wind Farm, located between 17 and 23 kilometres off the coast of North Norfolk in the UK, comprises 88 wind turbines and generates around 1.1TWh of green energy per annum. This is enough clean energy to power almost 220,000 British homes. Compared to fossil fuels that is a reduction of around 500,000 tonnes of CO² emissions every year.

Sheringham Shoal Offshore Wind Farm is owned by Equinor, Green Investment Group and Equitix through joint-venture company Scira Offshore Energy Limited, and Equinor is the operator of the wind farm.
