Wind farm deal 'underlines ambitions to grow our business'

EDF Energy has today announced that it has bought 11 wind farm sites.

The company, which has a major centre site in Barnwood, has bought the sites in Scotland from development and asset management specialists Partnerships for Renewables.

Three sites already have planning consent, one site is in the planning system already and seven other sites are in development.

The majority of the projects, which have been bought by the renewables arm of EDF, are on land managed by Forest Enterprise Scotland.

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.
