Madrid, September 8th 2023: EDP Renováveis, S.A. (“EDPR”) informs that, as part of the Allocation Round 5 auction in the UK promoted by the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero, two wind onshore projects under development, with a 56 MW capacity, were awarded with Contracts for Difference (“CfD”) at £70.7/MWh 2023 nominal price (£52.29/MWh 2012 nominal price), a price updated to inflation, for a 15-year term of the contracts, starting in 2027.

The two wind farm projects, Ben Sca (41 MW) and Lurg Hill (15 MW), are located in Scotland and are expected to enter in operation by 2026.
