REPD: Scottish offshore wind capacity up 7%

The latest quarterly update of the Renewable Energy Planning Database (REPD) was published on Tuesday 15 October, giving an overview of current and planned renewable energy projects across Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The database provides a view of renewable energy and storage projects with technology type, location, capacity, planning status and development progress specified for each site. Compared to the June database, the September update highlights a 3.4% increase in the total operational capacity of renewable energy or storage assets in the UK, with the biggest growth seen in Scottish offshore wind capacity (+7%). There has been an 11% increase in the pipeline capacity for projects that have received planning permission but have yet to become operational, with the biggest areas of growth being storage and solar assets in England and the addition of the 240MW Morlais Demonstration tidal barrage project in Wales to the database.
