DONG Energy response to strike price

Brent Cheshire, DONG Energy UK Chairman said: “We welcome the announcements from the Government on the FID-Enabling process and the strikes prices today. This is a concrete step in the right direction from the Government towards fulfilling the next phase of offshore wind development in the UK. The strong commitment to offshore wind demonstrated by the Government today gives us the confidence to move forward with our future pipeline of projects.

DONG Energy has already committed to invest £4bn in the UK’s offshore wind market and we are the world leader in this field. DONG Energy views the UK as a great place to invest and it is a growth market for us – our 1.6GW of installed offshore wind farms already power over 1 million homes.”
