    Offshore renewable energy is evolving rapidly, with offshore wind being one of the pioneer sectors. Energy generated from offshore wind farms needs an efficient transmission system of subsea power cables to connect to the onshore network. Energy transmission networks can form the most expensive components of offshore wind farms. Setting aside the actual manufacturing and installation costs, the potential costs related to a […]
