interactive map offshore windThe Crown Estate has launched an interactive map that shows the estimated percentage of UK electricity demand being met by offshore wind on an hourly basis. The map draws together a range of publically available data to demonstrate the contribution offshore wind is making to the UK’s low carbon energy mix.

The UK now has 27 operational wind farms. Although there is variation in output on a daily basis, over the course of 2015 offshore wind is expected to meet an average of around 5 per cent of UK electricity demand. As the map is updated throughout the day it can reach highs of up to around 12 per cent at peak operation. The map can be broken down by individual wind farms to show the site capacity, operator, number of turbines, and current output. It also shows wind speed and direction.
