Abstract ETI’s Strategy Manager Stuart Bradley presents “Offshore Wind - Floating Turbines” at the BIS Group Offshore Wind Operations and Maintenance Forum 2016. The slide set covers:
  • Introduction to ETI and ESME, ETI’s modelling tool integrating power, heat, transport and infrastructure providing national / regional system designs
  • Energy System Scenarios
  • Offshore Wind
  • Water Depth
  • Wind Resource and Water Depth Compared
  • Offshore Wind Turbines
  • What do we use for Offshore Wind today?
  • Foundation Types
  • Floating Wind
    • Tension Leg Platform
    • Engineering Design
    • Cost Study - CAPEX
    • LCoE Forecast
  • Conclusions
    • Offshore Wind has a significant role to play in the UK 2050 energy mix
    • With a range of Fixed and Floating foundations, UK can optimise the offshorefleet LCoE
    • Floating Wind has potential to deliver costs at less than £85/MWh from mid-2020s, and further significant cost reduction afterwards
    • Further Work
      • Demonstration at full-scale
      • Geographical distribution and cost optimisation
      • Establish cost of energy potential for other floating technologies
