Wind power

As one of the UK and Ireland’s leaders in developing wind projects, we've never been busier helping cut UK carbon emissions to nothing.

We develop, build, operate and maintain onshore and offshore wind farms

Wind power is low carbon, plentiful and it will never run out, making it an important and reliable energy source

What is wind power?

Find out more about why we need wind power and the benefits of generating energy from wind.

How does wind power work?

Making use of the wind's power is nothing new – windmills have been used to power machinery for hundreds of years, but how exactly do turbines turn wind energy into electricity?

Our wind farms

EDF Renewables has 37 renewable energy sites and our portfolio is expanding with almost 4 GW of projects in planning and development.

A zero carbon mix to power the nation, whatever the weather

We're Britain's biggest generator of zero carbon electricity(1), find out how we generate zero carbon electricity from wind + nuclear + solar.


We're investing to accelerate the UK’s shift to
low-carbon nuclear and renewable energy and storage to
Help Britain achieve Net Zero

Drive electric

We have electric car leasing deals, home charging points and zero-carbon EV tariffs - everything you need to drive electric and help cut Britain’s carbon emissions.

Plan for a green recovery

With the right policies in place, we plan to enable investment in low carbon technologies in the UK worth over £50bn by 2035. This amounts to 12GW of wind, solar and nuclear power – meeting one fifth of UK demand.

Building new nuclear

We’re building new power stations that will help meet Britain’s future electricity demand for the next 60 years – good news for the jobs market and the race to Net Zero.
