01 Jan 2024: Update January 2023: Launch of the tender for the second 500MW park off Brittany is expected in 2024. Update March 2022: As part of a Sector Deal (Spring 2022), the government announced targets to increase annual tender volumes from 1 to 2 GW from 2025. The revised Multiannual Energy Programmes (PPE), published April 2020, sets the regulatory framework defining renewable energy tenders and policy for periods 2019-2023 and 2023-2028. From 2024 the government have set an annual tender target of 1 GW to be awarded for a combination of fixed and/or floating. From 2024 warded projects will mostly involve extending previous wind farm projects and sharing exisiting transmission systems to reduce costs. PPE assumes six-seven years from tender award to commissioning. Analysts assume a lead time of five-six years between tender award and offshore construction start. Hence capacity awarded in 2024 likely to start construction in 2029-2030 and commissioning 2030-2031
