The IET lighthouse series – coordinating offshore energy systems

IET Factfile: Coordinating offshore wind systems

Phase 1 landscape report – how are current initiatives and stakeholders coordinated?

The UK commitment to net-zero greenhouse emissions by 2050 is driving previously separate industries to build and repurpose offshore energy assets. The 2020s will see much more infrastructure offshore but there is no obvious forum to bring the many different stakeholders together. How will these developments impact each other, and with existing infrastructure, marine users, and ecosystems? What will be the impact at landfall sites and onshore?

Written for local authorities, Government, nongovernmental organisations (NGOs) and those in the energy industry, the IET lighthouse series will bring together stakeholders to answer the question: Is there a case for a more integrated approach for deployment of offshore networks as a key infrastructure enabler for net zero and if so, what is the best way to enable this? This flyer presents the main findings of the upcoming landscape report.
