Offshore Transmission

Offshore wind is currently playing, and likely to continue to play, an important role in ensuring the UK is able to deliver 15 per cent of all energy used from renewable sources.

This section contains information on:

·    offshore wind development (see 'Electricity Ten Year Statement') 

·    offshore connection approaches and their impacts (see 'Approach'),

·    regulatory information and codes surrounding offshore (see 'Codes'), and

·    a joint study with EirGrid to connect Irish midlands wind to the Irish transmission system (see Joint Study with EirGrid').
