Vattenfall in Norfolk

Vattenfall is planning two offshore wind farms off the coast of Norfolk that could power more than 3.9 million UK homes.

Offshore wind will be the backbone of our energy system as we tackle climate change. By 2050, it's estimated that renewable energy will provide 80% of our electricity needs, and a much of this will need to come from offshore wind farms.

Norfolk Vanguard and Norfolk Boreas are part of the next generation of wind farms. By working with communities, the supply chain, skills and environmental experts, we have designed projects that can bring real lasting benefits – to Norfolk and the UK.

Norfolk Zone Community Benefit Fund

These wind farms will bring £15 million of funding for local communities, and will be in place for the 25 year life of the wind farms. This is the largest funding commitment to Norfolk by an offshore wind company to date. 1500 residents shared their initial views and ideas on the ways the funding could most benefit their community. Sign up today to get involved in the next phase of work to decide how we can create lasting benefit - for people and the planet.

Protecting and improving biodiversity

We need to tackle climate change in a way that protects and contributes to improving our biodiversity. At Vattenfall, we have committed to net positive by 2030.

Supply chain opportunities

There are companies of all sizes and backgrounds working and thriving in the wind industry. By 2030 our wind farms could power around 4.5 million UK homes and create thousands of skilled jobs across the UK.

Imagine a future powered by offshore wind

Wind power is key to a fossil-fuel free future. What does a world powered by offshore wind look like?
