EDF Energy Renewables has opened a new office in Edinburgh to support the company’s growth plans in Scotland.
Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon was present at the opening ceremony, as was EDF Energy chief executive Vincent de Rivaz.
EDF said it already has 270MW of wind power in operation in Scotland, 215MW under construction, 400MW consented and 800MW in planning and development.
EDF Energy Renewables chief executive Matthieu Hue said: “Scotland has huge potential for renewable energy and we see it as key area of growth.”
The company also officially opened the six-turbine 19.2MW Pearie Law wind farm in the Central Belt of Scotland today.
