Energy: Wind Farms

Volume 689: debated on Monday 5 February 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will launch further consultations with industry to find suitable locations for new wind farms in addition to the London Array Thames Estuary and Warwick Energy North Foreland Thanet projects. [HL1532]

A number of offshore wind farm projects have been constructed or are now being brought forward for development. We are aware of developer interest in additional opportunities for the development of offshore renewable energy projects and have begun to explore options with the Crown Estate. Any consideration of future efforts will include consultation with the renewables sector and other parties with interests in or responsibilities for the marine environment.
