With a growing number of offshore wind projects being planned and constructed, it is important to assess and learn from the challenges encountered throughout the consenting process and assess what progress is being made.
The Offshore Consenting Conference will address the issues surrounding the consenting process in the UK for offshore wind farm projects.
The agenda will focus on strategic environmental assessment requirements and will look at real case studies to address the key issues relating to marine wildlife, post construction impact monitoring, industry standards and more.
- Interactive panel discussion: key government, regulator and industry speakers debate the challenges of the current consenting regime and future improvements
- Cumulative impacts: have we used up the ecological headroom?
- Case study presentations from Rampion and MW Moray offshore wind farms
