PUBLIC PROFILE

Virginia is looking for plans to create an infrastructure blueprint for offshore wind energy – a move local advocates and experts say could lead to more development and larger projects.

Gov. Ralph Northam announced May 22 the Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy was looking for proposals. Hampton Roads – with its port infrastructure and workforce – was touted by Northam as an ideal location for wind energy.

“Virginia should be the prime location for the offshore wind industry, from the supply chain to the full build-out of our offshore wind assets off the coast,” Northam said in the release.

A new £900,000 joint industry initiative has been set up to explore the use of autonomous surface vessels in the offshore wind sector.

The 18-month Windfarm Autonomous Ship Project (WASP) is part-funded by Innovate UK and led by unnmanned marine systems company ASV Global, in partnership with the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult, SeaRoc Group, Houlder and University of Portsmouth

Statoil is working with its partner SSE <SSE.L> to develop the Dogger Bank offshore wind project so it can take part in Britain's renewable energy subsidy auction in 2019, the company said on Friday.

The planned 4.8 gigawatt (GW) Dogger Bank project, which has approval from the British authorities, is set to become the world's largest offshore wind park and could deliver more than five percent of Britain's electricity needs, Statoil Executive Vice President Irene Rummelhoff said in London.

When Majid Al-Suwaidi landed in Aruba in 2016, the United Arab Emirates consulate general to New York may have seemed as unlikely a guest as any to the tiny Caribbean island. His home nation and Aruba are separated by more than 12,000 kilometers (roughly 7,500 miles) as the crow flies. And the former oil company geologist wasn’t vacationing, like most tourists there, but had come to discuss business — the business of renewable energy, including solar panels and wind farms.

The report by industry intelligence service A Word About Wind says that US offshore wind is finally gaining momentum, fuelled by innovation in turbine technologies, greater economies of scale and increased political support – at least at the state level. New York, in particular, is ideally placed to benefit and serve as an economic and financial hub for US wind over the next decade. The report forms the latest analysis published exclusively for A Word About Wind’s rapidly expanding international membership of energy developers, financiers and investors.

Right now, it’s merely a sandbank. A stretch of shallow water with high wind speeds in the heart of the North Sea. But if it’s up to TenneT, the Dutch-German Transmission System Operator, Dogger Bank will be transformed into an 6 km2 artificial island, a hub connecting all future wind farms in the North Sea by 2050. Its scale dwarfs current offshore sites.

The UN General Assembly’s Second Committee (Economic and Financial) concluded its debate on its agenda item on sustainable development. Member States stressed the importance of: strong educational systems that promote sustainable development; enhanced cooperation in support of the most vulnerable countries; ratification and expedited implementation of the Paris Agreement on climate change; and localization of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at grassroots levels.

INNOGY has taken sole ownership of Triton Knoll offshore wind farm.

The German utility giant has bought out Norwegian company Statkraft’s share in what is an undisclosed deal for the fully consented project, which received Government subsidy support last month.

Triton Knoll has been managed by Innogy, previously RWE, throughout the lengthy development process.

Researchers from the University of Exeter in the U.K. will collaborate with counterparts in China on the development of offshore renewable energy technologies.

The project, co-lead by Professor Bing Chen from Dalian University of Technology in China, has received a grant of more than £800,000 ($1.1 million) from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and the Natural Environment Research Council, and RMB2.94million ($450,000) from the National Natural Science Foundation of China
