Through the Dogger Bank wind farm we make £1 million available during the construction of the offshore wind farm. Dogger Bank is a joint venture project between SSE Renewables, Equinor and Eni.
A key focus for the fund will be supporting young people in the area by investing in STEM activities (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and scholarships. Money will also be made available to support local community groups.
Dogger Bank Wind Farm will share the benefit of the wind farm with the coastal communities nearest to our construction and operational bases:
- East Riding of Yorkshire
- Redcar and Cleveland (once Dogger Bank C begins construction)
- South Tyneside
During the construction of the wind farm the fund will provide:
- Dogger Bank STEM Programme – investing in the workforce of the future by supporting 142 local schools.
- Dogger Bank Scholarship Programme – helping the next generation by providing 50 scholarships to local students.
- Operators Fund – providing grants of up to £1,000 to local community groups.
