Lithuanian state-owned energy company Lietuvos Energija has received initial interest from ten potential partners to jointly develop offshore wind projects in Lithuania and abroad. Lietuvos Energija initiated an Expression of Interest (EOI) process in February to find an experienced partner and jointly develop offshore wind projects within the European Economic Area. The ten potential partners who responded to the call are all ''European offshore wind market […]
THEMA Consulting Group, in cooperation with COWI and EA Energy Analyses, has conducted a study on offshore wind potential in the Baltic Sea and the barriers to its development. Carried out for the European Commission, the study identifies potential offshore wind sites and examines the impacts of different levels of both offshore wind deployment and […]
A new UK consortium is developing a self-installing scour protection system said to be able to save an average offshore wind farm approximately GBP 8.6 million over its lifetime. The Self-Installing Scour Protection for Offshore Wind Farms (SISProtect) project is being led by Seabed Scour Control Systems (SSCS), who will carry out the design of the prototype Frond […]
Aerospace technology could help develop a new protection system for offshore wind turbine blades that could eliminate the need for intervention related to rain erosion, a new research suggests. Conducted by the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult, Doncasters Bramah and Performance Engineered Solutions (PES), the Leading Edge for Turbines (LEFT) project suggests that the by stopping the […]
Rocks in the seabed off the UK coast could provide long-term storage locations for renewable energy production, according to the new research by the Universities of Edinburgh and Strathclyde. Engineers and geoscientists from the Universities of Edinburgh and Strathclyde used mathematical models to assess the potential of the process, called compressed air energy storage (CAES). […]
