Wind power

Onshore wind power is one of the easiest ways of generating low-cost electricity from renewable energy sources, and plays an important role in meeting the UK’s energy needs. Statkraft currently has four wind farms in operation across the UK, an a number of projects under development.

Statkraft has developed a competitive position within onshore wind power in the UK and the Nordics and has a proven track record of delivering construction projects on cost and time.

Onshore wind farms in the UK

Statkraft is currently the majority owner of four wind farms in the UK; Alltwalis, Andershaw, Berry Burn and Baille Wind Farms. To see the wind farm projects under development, visit the onshore wind farm development section.

Onshore wind farm development projects

In ramping up as a wind and solar developer, Statkraft will significantly grow its onshore wind portfolio in the UK, focussing on Scotland and Wales.

How our wind farms work

Wind turbines produce electricity by converting the kinetic energy of the wind into electrical power. The rotor blades on a wind turbine transfer the power of the wind via a drive shaft to a generator in the nacelle. The rotor blades are adjustable to produce the largest amount of electricity, regardless of whether the wind is blowing hard or gently. Wind turbines are typically placed on hill tops or in coastal areas – places with abundant and stable wind.

Our wind power ambitions

We exist to lead the shift to a clean energy world. To meet the increased need for renewable energy solutions we are ramping up as a major wind and solar developer. We have built 1 gigawatt of wind and solar, and have yet another gigawatt under construction. Our ambition is to develop 6 GW of wind power by 2025.
