Innovation in Energy

As the UK transitions to a low carbon future, research and development has a key role to play in developing Vattenfall’s UK wind portfolio and lowering costs to UK consumers.

Vattenfall’s wind research and development work identifies and strives to remove technical, environmental and economic obstacles to viable growth in wind power. This is achieved through long-term, strategic R&D aimed at developing key tools and competencies.

The overall objectives of the wind R&D programme are to increase our competence and enhance the technology to support the implementation of commercial large-scale wind power.

Vattenfall is a member of UK industry groups like the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult and the Offshore Wind Industry Council that seek to innovate and improve performance of projects in the onshore.
