Commenting on DONG Energy’s Hornsea One offshore wind farm reaching final investment decision, RenewableUK’s Deputy Chief Executive, Maf Smith, said “Today’s decision is an important step in making this historic project a reality; it signals the start of creating a new landmark in the North Sea.

Its size is guaranteed to bring a multitude of benefits to the UK, in particular, a huge amount of inward investment and the creation of local jobs on the east coast of England. This offshore wind farm will play an important part in meeting our Paris climate commitments, but will also help create the new energy infrastructure this country desperately needs”.
