The government is launching a new call for evidence to examine how the UK can build back greener through marine renewable projects across the country. Marine renewables include emerging technologies such as floating offshore wind farms, tidal stream and wave energy. The consultation will invite views from developers and other interested parties on areas including: how projects could be funded; how costs could be reduced; how the environmental impacts can best be handled; how supply chains could benefit in the nations and regions of the UK. The new consultation builds on the UK’s success in renewable energy so far, with more offshore wind capacity than any other country in the world and well over a third of its energy now coming from renewables.
