Offshore wind potential new leasing | The Crown Estate

Offshore wind potential new leasing

Latest updates about The Crown Estate’s work with the offshore wind industry and stakeholders to consider making new seabed rights available for offshore wind.

As managers of the seabed around England, Wales and Northern Ireland, The Crown Estate is working with the offshore wind sector and stakeholders to consider making new seabed rights available for offshore wind. 

In line with Government and industry appetite for additional offshore wind capacity, and following the significant cost reduction demonstrated by the sector, we are working to explore the potential scale, location and nature of potential new leasing.

Listening to views

Following our initial announcement of the potential new leasing round in November 2017, we have been actively engaging with the industry and stakeholders, to share our analysis and our proposed tender process, and seek views on our approach.

This feedback has helped us to refine our proposals for new offshore wind leasing round. Once confirmed, this would be known as Round 4.
