Most tenders see 8 to 12 bidders per renewable energy project, with some participants rating up to 20 for more attractive sites. “Today`s announcement that we have entered into a purchase agreement with Ørsted for Dogger Bank A and B marks one of our final milestones ahead of the upcoming financial close of the world`s largest offshore wind farm. These agreements with major energy distributors will ensure that renewable energy produced in the first two phases of the dogger Bank wind farm can be sold in the UK electricity market, delivering on our promise to provide green energy to millions of UK homes. “We are pleased to announce purchase agreements for dogger Bank A and B. .
