Pentland Floating Offshore Wind Farm
(information from Planet Sutherland May 2022)
If you have questions regarding the project or would like to receive updates, you can contact Pentlandemail@example.com to be added to the mailing list.
Foundation Scotland has been contracted to carry out a consultation on a proposed community benefit fund for the Pentland Floating Offshore Wind Farm. The consultation is being carried out through an online survey which is currently available at: https://www.foundationscotland.org.uk/pentland
Please feel free to circulate this within your members or to other interested persons/groups.
In addition, we are hosting a series of online group sessions or individual one on one discussions in order to understand local preferences about the kinds of projects or activities that the Fund may support, and how the Fund may operate. If you would like to be involved in the virtual or one-to-one discussion you can contact myself on telephone 07801 530 218 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Prospect of 25 GW more renewable energy from auction of offshore wind licenses
The Scottish government has awarded 25 gigawatts of offshore wind project development rights, more than double the UK’s existing offshore wind capacity, in one of the biggest auctions of its kind in the world.
More than half the projects, with a total capacity of 13GW, will use “floating” wind turbines, the first time that this technology, which is tethered to the seabed, will be deployed commercially at a large scale.
