The workshop aimed to identify:

  • the main consenting and environmental risks and barriers to the development of floating offshore wind farms at a demonstration and commercial scale
  • what’s needed to de-risk planning, environmental consenting and post consent monitoring

The report summarises the workshop outputs and pulls together the information generated, with interpretation and recommendations for future action.

A full list of attendees is included.
