SSE Renewables is a leading developer and operator of renewable energy across the UK and Ireland, with a portfolio of around 4GW of onshore wind, offshore wind and hydro. Our strategy is to drive the transition to a net zero future – through the world class development, construction and operation of renewable energy assets.
SSE Renewables’ overall aim is to deliver enough renewable projects to generate 30TWh by 2030, trebling SSE’s renewable energy output from 2019 levels. This will make a significant contribution to decarbonising the power sector and achieving net zero emissions by 2050.
SSE Renewables owns nearly 2GW of operational onshore wind capacity with over 1GW under development. Our 1,459MW hydro portfolio includes 300MW of pumped storage and 750MW of flexible hydro. Our operational offshore wind portfolio consists of 579MW across three offshore sites in UK waters, two of which we operate on behalf of joint venture partners.
SSE Renewables has the largest offshore wind development pipeline in the UK and Ireland at over 6GW and has an onshore wind pipeline across both markets in excess of 1GW.
