The report found that whilst there are multiple stakeholders across various energy sectors in the UK actively engaged in energy integration projects, there are gaps in coordination between different stakeholder groups.
Furthermore, the report identified key barriers to energy integration in the UK that must be addressed to enable the energy sector to support the national target of net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
The Renewables Consulting Group, who supported us in the authorship of the report, has tracked notable new updates and coordinated activity pertinent to integrated offshore energy development in the UK and neighbouring waters since the final publishing of the report.
This update provides a breakdown of key government activity relating to integrated energy development since March, an appraisal of newly identified groups progressing stakeholder coordination, and major news updates on integrated energy projects in the UK and Northern Europe.
