What about when the wind doesn’t blow?

Outer Dowsing is located 33 miles offshore where the wind reaches higher speeds than on land due to the lack of obstacles and different weather conditions. Wind speeds do vary, and to mitigate against this Outer Dowsing Offshore Wind will be part of a UK-wide network of other power generators, interconnectors and energy storage facilities. The diverse locations and different operating characteristics of these facilities will help produce reliable power that can be directed by the National Grid to customers where and when they need it.
