Crown Estate’s Offshore Wind Knowledge Portfolio Available at Energy Institute
In a collaboration with the Energy Institute (EI), The Crown Estate has brought together over 100 reports and publications, produced as part of its strategic offshore wind programme, and made them more widely available through the EI Knowledge Service.
This significant range of publications, developed over the last five years, aims to help mitigate, reduce, and manage risks and costs for the offshore wind sector.
The EI Knowledge Service is an established online resource covering a number of energy sectors, including offshore wind. This collection has been categorised into eleven different themes covering asset management, construction, cost reduction, supply chain, skills, planning and consenting, health and safety, project economics and finance, grid, technology and innovation, and operation and maintenance.
Huub den Rooijen, Head of Offshore Wind, The Crown Estate, says: “By making the wealth of knowledge we develop available through the EI’s well-respected Knowledge Service we can help create a ‘one-stop shop’ for industry that more effectively shares best practice, avoids duplication and therefore helps to bring down costs and further unlock the potential of offshore wind over the long term.”
Martin Maeso CEnv MEI, Knowledge and Technical Director, Energy Institute, says: “This partnership with The Crown Estate strengthens our resources to support those working in offshore wind and provide guidance and research on a variety of technical issues facing the sector.”
The EI has also added supplementary material from its own extensive online archives, enabling users to access a wide range of material, from good practice guidance and industry news, to feature articles and academic literature. The Crown Estate’s offshore wind portfolio is available free of charge to the public, as is access to a significant proportion of the EI’s accompanying material.
