Steps Forward in Sustainable Offshore Wind Production

Eleven offshore wind developers are partnering with the Carbon Trust to make future offshore wind more sustainable.

They will work in collaboration with the Carbon Trust to develop the first industry-backed methodology and guidance to measure and address the carbon emissions associated with offshore wind farms throughout their lifecycle.

The Carbon Trust said the aim is to help the global offshore wind industry scale as sustainably as possible and continue its important contribution towards meeting the world’s Net Zero target by 2050 and limiting the most extreme impacts of climate change.

A standardised methodology will ensure the scale of installation needed is delivered in a low carbon way and encourage comparability across developers and assets.

According to the IEA, an additional 70-80GW will need to be installed every year from 2030 in order to achieve Net Zero by 2050. Read more here.
