SSE RENEWABLES: Seagreen Supports £1bn Economic Boost To Scotland By SSE Renewables


The construction of what will be Scotland’s largest offshore wind farm, Seagreen, has supported the delivery of a £1bn economic boost by SSE Renewables to the Scottish economy in the last year, according to new independent analysis published today.

The details are included in a new Sustainability Report published today by SSE Renewables, alongside a report providing independent analysis by PwC measuring the value the company adds to GDP and the jobs it supports across its home markets of the UK and Ireland for the last three years.

The report, which covers the 12 months from 1 April 2021 to 31 March 2022, outlines how SSE Renewables’ delivery of flagship infrastructure projects, the £3bn Seagreen project and the £580m Viking onshore wind project in Shetland, has driven the £1bn contribution to Scotland’s economy while also helping the country reach its net zero ambitions.

Additionally, the SSE Renewables £1bn contribution to Scotland’s GDP from its construction and operational activities has supported around 4,000 Scottish jobs in the last year.

The publication of the SSE Renewables Sustainability Report 2022 marks the first time the UK’s leading renewable energy developer, owner and operator has detailed the actions it is taking to put sustainability at the core of its strategy for ambitious growth in the UK and Ireland, and overseas.
