Boosting offshore renewables will accelerate the energy transition and allow G20 countries to build a resilient and sustainable energy system, a new report by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) has found.
China Three Gorges (CTG) Renewables has announced that its Shaba (Shapa) offshore wind project, currently under construction off the city of Yangjiang in Guangdong Province, surpassed an installed capacity of 1 GW on 15 July, making it China’s first GW-range offshore wind farm.
A consortium comprising Parkwind, Quaybridge Scotland, and Maple Power (a joint venture between Enbridge and Canada Pension Plan Investment Board) announced on 20 July that their NextGen consortium was participating in the ScotWind seabed leasing round in Scotland.
After announcing their intention to bid in the ScotWind seabed leasing this May, British oil & gas major BP and German offshore wind developer EnBW have now detailed on their plan in Scotland, which encompasses more than offshore wind.
