The Dogger Bank development will consist of a number of offshore wind farms, each with an onshore grid connection and a capacity of up to 1.2GW. These wind farms will individually comprise some hundreds of wind turbines (depending on the size of turbines selected), offshore substations, export cables, onshore converter stations and associated infrastructure.

Each project will require its own development consent order from the National Infrastructure Directorate (NID) of the Planning Inspectorate and will undergo an Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) as well as specific stakeholder and community consultation activities.

CO2 reduction: Each 1.2GW Dogger Bank wind farm would reduce CO2 emissions by almost two million tonnes per annum, based on the current UK energy mix and a capacity factor of 40%.
