Abstract This project examined the specific challenges and opportunities arising from the connection of offshore energy to the UK grid system and considered the impact of large-scale offshore development. It also looked into the novel electrical system designs and control strategies that could be developed to collect, manage and transmit energy back to shore and identified and assessed innovative technology solutions to these issues and quantified their benefits. The research was delivered by Sinclair Knight Merz, a leading projects firm with global capability in strategic consulting, engineering and project delivery. The project was completed in 2010.
