    Projects from developers including SSE Plc, Equinor ASA and Innogy SE won offshore wind power-purchase contracts that will have the capacity to generate as much as 5.5 gigawatts of power…[SSE-Equinor’s project off England’s east coast will be] the biggest single offshore wind park in the world…One of the winning areas, known as Dogger Bank, is off the coast of Yorkshire. Three projects by Equinor and SSE were approved in the zone for a total generation of 3.6 gigawatts. Another 1.4 gigawatt project developed by Innogy was also approved in the same area…The next U.K. auction, set to take place in 2021, is expected to] draw as much as 20 billion pounds of investment in offshore wind…” click here for more
