Commenting on Crown Estate Scotland’s announcement of the results of their INTOG (Innovation and Targeted Oil and Gas) leasing round, Gus Jaspert, Managing Director, Marine said:
“Crown Estate Scotland’s latest leasing round is another boost for the UK’s world-leading offshore wind sector. Awarding seabed rights for projects that will support innovation and new technologies like floating offshore wind will be integral to supporting a green, secure energy future and UK supply chain alongside a thriving natural world.”
The Crown Estate and Crown Estate Scotland are separate entities.
The Crown Estate manages the seabed around England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Through our activities and investment we play a significant role in unlocking renewable energy for millions of homes through sectors such as offshore wind and creating opportunities for new technologies like CCUS and hydrogen to deliver the UK’s energy security transition, resulting in thousands of jobs for communities across the UK.
