ESO reaction to Scotwind Leasing Round

An ESO spokesperson said:

We note the announcement of the results of ScotWind leasing round – it is a significant milestone on the UK’s pathway to net zero. With OTNR project partners and key stakeholders we are reviewing the outcome of the ScotWind leasing round in the context of the Holistic Network Design (HND), in terms of what it means for the methodology. We will be speaking with successful developers to understand more about the specifics of each project, to build on the spatial information available through Crown Estate Scotland. We will provide a further update by 11 February.
