      Original Press Release:

      Feb. 1 -- RenewableUK issued the following news release:

      Commenting on the publication today by The Crown Estate of its annual Offshore Wind Evidence and Change Programme report, Benj Sykes, the Sponsor of the Offshore Wind Industry Council’s Pathways to Growth Workstream and Ørsted’s UK Offshore Head of Environment, Consenting and External Affairs, said:

      “This report highlights the numerous initiatives which the OWEC programme is funding to gather high-quality data and evidence to enable us to plan, construct and operate offshore wind farms in a way which ensures that we put sustainability at the heart of everything we do.

      “There’s an urgent need for us to roll out new offshore wind projects faster, to tackle energy security and cost challenges and reach Net Zero as soon as possible. We’re working with the OWEC programme and directly with Government to support the delivery of the Energy Security Strategy, including key measures to reduce the time it takes to for a project to gain consent from four years to one year and to deliver measures to compensate for any impacts on a more strategic, ecosystem-wide basis.

      “The OWEC Programme projects are pivotal in providing the evidence needed to ensure that we continue to safeguard our environment whilst driving the delivery of the Government’s ambition of 50 gigawatts by 2030, nearly quadrupling our current offshore wind capacity and bolstering the UK’s energy security significantly”.


      1. The Offshore Wind Industry Council (OWIC) is a senior Government and industry forum established in 2013 to drive the development of the world-leading offshore wind sector in the UK.
