3rd Annual Offshore Consenting Conference

As the number of offshore wind projects being planned and constructed is growing, it is more crucial than ever to assess and learn from the challenges that have been encountered throughout the consenting process and analyse what progress has been made.

Highlights will include:

  • An update on the Planning Inspectorate’s consenting regime: looking at the time frame for projects and how the process can ensure enough projects are consented to enable the UK to reach the EU targets for 2020
  • Future-proofing consents – looking at the impact of post-consent monitoring
  • Approaches for defining cumulative impact constraints and best-practice methods for assessments
  • Pre-construction variation of the DCO
  • You will hear from key speakers in the industry: Department of Energy and Climate Change, Scottish Government, The Crown Estate, Natural England, The Carbon Trust, The Planning Inspectorate and the Marine Management Organisation to name a few
