UK-based renewable company Good Energy has signed a new agreement with Danish firm Dong Energy to bring offshore wind for its customers.

The agreement secures 12% of Dong Energy's 210MW Westermost Rough windfarm's output. This will provide enough renewable electricity to power more than 26,000 average homes.

Good Energy's founder and chief executive Juliet Davenport said: “We’re delighted to be working with Dong Energy to bring offshore windpower to our customers for the first time.

“This agreement will help us meet ever-increasing demand for renewable electricity as our customer base continues to grow.”

Davenport added: “Offshore wind is a huge British success story and so we’re pleased to be playing our part by buying power from Westermost Rough.

“Offshore wind will complement the other renewable technologies in our energy mix, such as onshore wind and solar, so this agreement is a great fit for Good Energy and a good deal for our customers.

"Offshore wind will complement the other renewable technologies in our energy mix, such as onshore wind and solar."

“Dong Energy is a world leader in offshore wind who shares our passion for innovation in renewable energy, so we’re really looking forward to working together to build on this initial agreement.”

Dong Energy's trading and portfolio manager Søren Scherfig said: “We have an ambition to support the energy transformation in the UK and become one of the UK's leading energy suppliers to industrial and commercial customers and independent retailers. We want to supply sustainable, reliable, and affordable energy to our customers.”

“This agreement with Good Energy is an important milestone as it’s the first time a domestic supplier in the UK will buy energy from a specific Dong Energy offshore windfarm.”

The deal is for an initial period of 12 months and is likely to be extended for the longer term as part of the wider co-operation between the two companies.

It is also expected that the volume of power purchased by Good Energy from Dong will increase over time.
