Offshore Wind Leasing Round 4 - Invitations to Tender are Open

07 April 2020

Unlocking new areas of seabed for the generation of low-carbon energy for millions more homes by 2030.

Invitation to Tender (ITT) Stage 1 for Round 4 is now open. In light of the current COVID-19 situation, the submission period has been extended, to afford bidders additional time to respond.

The UK has the largest operating offshore wind capacity in the world, a national success story to be proud of. With strong market appetite for new offshore wind in UK waters, and clear backing from Government, the time is right to bring forward additional seabed rights – helping to unlock this increasingly important source of renewable energy and support the UK’s clean energy future. 

Round 4, the first leasing opportunity of this scale in a decade, creates the opportunity for at least 7GW of new projects in the waters around England and Wales, delivering a robust pipeline for low-cost offshore wind deployment.
