The Crown Estate, Crown Estate Scotland and National Grid ESO announce partnership, to improve coordination of offshore wind transmission infrastructure

The Crown Estate, Crown Estate Scotland and National Grid Electricity System Operator (ESO) have committed to working closely together to support the development of a more coordinated approach to the delivery of transmission infrastructure for offshore wind projects.

As key partners of the Offshore Transmission Network Review (OTNR), all three organisations recognise that a coordinated approach to seabed leasing and planning, development and construction of transmission infrastructure related to offshore wind is required if the UK is to realise it’s clean energy potential offshore, while minimising impacts on the marine environment, and on coastal communities.

 

As pressures on our marine environment increase, all three organisations will build on their existing close working relationships, to collaborate in a range of new ways, identifying new priorities and further opportunities for alignment, principally through the OTNR. 

 

This collaboration underpins the organisations’ shared ambition to work proactively toward positive solutions for the benefit of the nation.
