EDF Energy Renewables – a joint venture between EDF Energy and EDF Energies Nouvelles – uses the natural, renewable resource of the wind to provide the UK with competitively priced, low carbon energy. By 2020, the current UK Government wants 15% of the UK’s energy to come from renewables, and the Scottish Government is aiming for 100%. Combining the experience and expertise of both companies, EDF Energy Renewables is in the perfect position to support and drive the country’s new generating capacity – helping to meet the country’s growing demand for safe, low carbon energy.

We deliver new renewables through a number of potential technologies, though our main focus is on onshore and offshore wind. And since we’re an integrated operator, we’re involved at every stage of a project: development, construction, production, and operation and maintenance of wind farms.
We’re experienced in all areas of this important early stage: from site selection and technical feasibility studies to review of project impact and advantages, public consultation and liaison with local authorities.
During this phase we procure supplier services, buy equipment, and partner with our supply chain and other experts to design, construct and deliver the work. Thanks to the expertise of our parent company Energies Nouvelles, we can source the best turbine model for each site and use their worldwide buying power to keep our costs down.
Electricity generated by our wind farms feeds into the regional and national grid networks through a connection at an existing or purpose built substation.
Operations and Maintenance
As operators of all our wind farms, we can make sure that wind farm efficiency is optimised throughout its life cycle. And we do it through 24/7 supervision of plant production, production follow up and analysis, and ongoing inspection and maintenance.
