EDF Energy Renewables has bought 11 wind farm sites from Partnerships for Renewables, a development and asset management company. The sites in Scotland have a potential capacity of 600 MW.

Three sites with around 100MW of capacity already have planning consent, one site is in the planning system already and seven other sites are in development. The majority of the projects are on land managed by Forest Enterprise Scotland. 

The acquisition is further evidence of EDF Group’s commitment to Scotland and renewable energy in the UK and around the world.  EDF ER currently has 319 MW in operation in Scotland with more than 1 GW in development, including the fully consented 340MW Lewis Wind Farm projects.

EDF Energy Renewables Chief Executive Matthieu Hue said:

'We are very pleased to be adding these ‘Partnerships for Renewables’ projects to our portfolio. EDF Energy Renewables has a well-established strategy to grow our business either by developing our own sites or through acquiring high calibre projects. This deal underlines our ambitions to develop our business further and to expand the number of windfarm projects we are developing.'

The acquisition follows the opening of EDF Energy Renewables new offices in Edinburgh earlier this year.
