Julia King, Baroness Brown of Cambridge, has been appointed Chair of the Carbon Trust from July 2018.
The Carbon Trust has launched three tenders as part of its Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA) programme.
The Carbon Trust has announced Wind Farm Control Trials (WFCT), a new project designed to demonstrate how effective implementation of control strategies can reduce the cost of offshore wind.
The Carbon Trust has selected Windar Photonics to supply LiDARs for a new project launched as part of the Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA) programme.
Being a more nascent technology compared to fixed offshore wind, floating wind needs different kind of backing. In the long term, it will be able to compete with fixed offshore wind and other energy technologies, however, until that time the technology needs some additional support.
The Carbon Trust has announced the completion of the world’s largest trial of floating Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) systems.
The Carbon Trust has invited responses to a survey on underwater inspection methods to support identified emerging technologies in both oil and gas and renewables as part of its Offshore Wind Accelerator Programme. The Carbon Trust has identified that offshore wind is increasingly reliant on a number of subsea inspection and survey operations and that these […]
Dan Kyle Spearman, Project Manager within the Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA) programme at the Carbon Trust and one of the panellists at the closing discussion on short and long term potential at the Offshore WIND Conference in Amsterdam, has provided an update on the Access projects within the programme and an insight into the sector. […]
The Carbon Trust has awarded a contract for dynamic thermal rating of subsea cables (DTR) to the Kenilvorth-based Transmission Excellence Ltd. The GBP 375,000 contract is part of the Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA) initiative focussed on reducing the cost of energy from offshore wind by more than 10%. The thermal optimisation of subsea cables is critical to […]
The Carbon Trust has revealed the five winners of its dynamic export cable competition, part of the Floating Wind Joint Industry Project (JIP). The winners are the Norwegian Aker Solutions, Japan’s Furukawa Electric Co., Greek Hellenic Cables, the UK-based JDR Cable Systems and China’s Zhongtian Technology Submarine Cable. Supported by BPP Cables, the competition was launched to address the […]
The Carbon Trust has published guidelines on the use of suction caissons on offshore wind farms with an aim to increase their usage. The Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA) Suction Installed Caisson Foundation Design Guidelines features research and understanding to provide clarity and guidance for engineers looking to design suction buckets. According to The Carbon Trust, the […]
The Carbon Trust has launched three tenders for floating wind technology as part of the Floating Wind Joint Industry Partnership (JIP). In the first tender, The Carbon Trust is inviting companies and consortia to undertake a study looking at the feasibility and technology development needs for heavy lift offshore operations in a floating wind farm. The scope […]
Following the Japanese Government’s approval of a new offshore wind bill that will be put into effect in the spring of 2019, the Carbon Trust welcomed the move, saying that this was a crucial step for Japan’s future energy strategy.
The Carbon Trust has announced the winners of the latest innovation competition in its Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA) program which sought new or adaptable techniques for inspection of offshore wind foundations. Applications were open for four specific challenges, including weld inspection for monopile foundations, weld inspection for jacket foundations, grout inspection for monopile foundations and […]
The Carbon Trust-led Offshore Renewables Joint Industry Project (ORJIP) is working on creating a GIS/maps tool for Marine Scotland’s website, aiming to help reduce consenting risks in relation to offshore wind farms’ effect on seabirds.
The Carbon Trust, within its Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA) programme, is looking for companies who will carry out a study of the sliding access method and determine if it can be de-risked.
The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) has published “The Metocean Plan”, authored by the UK-based Carbon Trust, which was supported by Frazer Nash Consultancy. The plan aims to support developers and financiers with the deployment of floating Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) solutions.
The Carbon Trust’s Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA) has launched a competition targeted at finding new ways to inspect offshore wind substructures and reduce the cost of offshore wind.
The Carbon Trust has launched a new collaborative initiative, the Energy Systems Innovation Platform (ESIP), to solve key issues currently preventing a more effective transition to a low cost and low carbon energy system.
Canada’s Axys Technologies Inc. has met all of the Stage 3 performance criteria outlined in the Carbon Trust Offshore Wind Accelerator Roadmap for Floating LiDAR Technology (OWA Roadmap).
A new report published by the Carbon Trust has highlighted the key areas for policy makers to consider in order to develop a world leading market for floating wind in the UK. Recommendations for policy and regulatory measures include a viable support mechanism to secure the UK’s position as a world leader in floating wind, as well […]
The Carbon Trust has launched tenders to assess the challenges of electrical systems, mooring systems, and logistics in large arrays of floating wind turbines.
The Carbon Trust’s Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA) has launched a new innovation competition on monitoring the condition of subsea cables to ensure that they are not damaged during the load out and installation process. The competition aims to solve this challenge by identifying and supporting the development of novel condition monitoring systems for subsea cables. Entries […]
The Carbon Trust and the Business Network for Offshore Wind, the US-based offshore wind supply chain organisation, have agreed to collaborate on supporting the development of the offshore wind sector in North America. The organisations have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), which details activities that the Carbon Trust and the Business Network for Offshore Wind will […]
The Carbon Trust is working as part of a consortium set up to progress the development of a tidal and floating wind energy test centre in the Nagasaki Prefecture, Japan. The Nagasaki Prefecture has been identified as a potential location for the offshore renewable test site, to not only take advantage of the region’s abundant […]
The Carbon Trust has invited tenders for Dynamic Thermal Rating of Subsea Cables (DTR), as part of its major technology accelerator initiative focussed on reducing the cost of energy (GBP / MWh) from offshore wind by more than 10 %. The Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA) is funding large-scale research, development and demonstration (RD&D) projects to unlock technological […]
