PUBLIC PROFILE

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

Dong Energy has been awarded a contract to build its Hornsea Project Two offshore wind farm by the U.K. government, one of three awards made on Monday.

With a capacity of 1,386MW, enough to power over 1.3 million U.K. homes, Hornsea Project Two will become the world’s biggest wind farm, surpassing the 1,200MW giant Hornsea Project One which Dong Energy is currently constructing. Hornsea Project Two will be built 89 kilometers (55 miles) from the Yorkshire coast and is expected to be operational from 2022 for 25 years.

The New York State Energy and Research Development Authority (NYSERDA) is leading the development of offshore wind on behalf of the State. Throughout 2017, NYSERDA is conducting extensive stakeholder outreach and directing more than twenty studies and surveys to ensure offshore wind is developed responsibly. This work will culminate in the New York State Offshore Wind Master Plan, to be released by the end of 2017.

One of three companies with plans to build commercial wind farms south of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard has begun a formal analysis of their lease area.

The start of Bay State Wind’s site assessment process moves the company a step ahead of its competitors in the federal regulatory permitting process. The federal Bureau of Ocean Energy Management is currently reviewing the site assessment plans of Vineyard Wind and Deepwater Wind for completeness.

California’s “jealous guardianship of the ocean” could slow offshore wind development off the Golden State, say developers and regulators.

Offshore wind is on a much slower development curve off the US west coast than off the northeast, in large part because the continental shelf drops off rapidly along the Pacific coast compared to the shallower Atlantic waters. But things got interesting in January 2016, when the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) received its first-ever lease request for a commercial
