Northumbrian Water has signed a deal with Ørsted to buy power from an offshore wind farm, claimed to be the first power purchase agreement (PPA) of its kind. The 10-year deal is the first direct supply agreement between a business and an offshore wind farm in the UK. It will see the water company take almost a third of its renewable energy demand from the Race Bank offshore wind farm, which follows an agreement between the two companies which started in April 2018. The corporate PPA will deliver around 100GWh of renewable electricity per year to Northumbrian Water’s sites in the North East, Essex and Suffolk.
