Who is SSE Renewables?

As part of SSE Group, SSE Renewables is a leading developer and operator of renewable energy generation. It is headquartered in the UK and Ireland and has a growing presence internationally. With a portfolio of around 4GW of onshore wind, offshore wind, and hydropower, they are widely experienced in delivering world-leading renewable energy projects.

SSE Renewables’ goal is to decarbonise the power sector and achieve net zero emissions by 2050. Their current 13GW+ construction and development pipeline already includes 3.5GW of onshore wind, 1.5GW of pumped storage, and 8.4GW of offshore wind energy, adding to the current 10TWh renewable power produced every year.

The world needs clean, affordable, and sustainable energy – quickly and at scale – and SSE Renewables’ purpose is to deliver it.

Offshore wind energy at SSE Renewables

SSE Renewables is building more offshore wind than any other company worldwide, and believe offshore wind will be the backbone of a net zero power system. Today, they have over 200 wind turbines in operation and are leading the construction of almost 5GW of new offshore wind generation. They have set a goal to double their current renewable generation capacity to 8GW by 2026 and more than triple capacity to 13GW by 2031. 

This increase is expected to result in SSE Renewables generating at least 50TWh of renewable energy output by the end of the next decade, a fivefold growth from 2019 levels. With the largest offshore wind development pipeline in the UK and Ireland at over 6GW, as well as the largest wind farm under construction worldwide called Dogger Bank, SSE Renewables has strong opportunities for the future and are now turning their attention to the next generation of offshore wind and to new horizons.

SSE Renewables is expanding internationally

International expansion is one of SSE Renewables’s main focus areas of growth, as globally, the demand for renewables is on the rise. There is strong renewables growth potential in international markets where SSE Renewables can extend their capabilities and diversify its pipeline.

SSE Renewables is exploring opportunities to enter new international markets in North America, Northern Europe, and Asia Pacific. One of these opportunities is Noordzeker, where SSE Renewables is working to develop and opere an offshore wind farm in the North Sea.

A valuable partnership: SSE Renewables and Noordzeker

SSE Renewables is a pioneer with 20 years of experience in offshore wind delivery. In Noordzeker, SSE Renewables sees strong opportunities for offshore wind development, driven by ambitious targets and a strong focus on innovation. 

With its expertise in nature and biodiversity conservation, circularity of turbines, and focus on community involvement, SSE Renewables will support Noordzeker in securing the energy supply for Dutch citizens and creating a liveable for future generations.
