Abstract ETI’s Programme Manager Andrew Scott presents “Floating Foundations for Offshore Wind” at the Society of Maritime Industries.
  • Offshore Wind has a significant role to play in the UK 2050 energy mix
    • Provides proven capability if other technology deployment is constrained
  • Potential to deliver costs competitive with lowest cost form of low carbon generation
  • Deployment of 8 to 16 GW of floating wind (if 2050 total is 40GW) could make economic sense for the UK
  • The larger the UK deployment of offshore wind, the more important floating wind will become
