Dong Energy will have invested £5.4 billion in regional offshore wind farms off the coast of North West England by 2019, a new report has revealed. The report, from economic development and generation consultancy Regeneris Consulting, shows that Dong Energy will have invested £5.4 billion between 2005 and 2019. The overall investment from the business supplier includes £2.7 billion across the four windfarms already in operation off the North West coastline and a further estimated £2.7 billion into the two currently under construction, including the 660MW Walney Extension which is expected to be completed in 2019.
