UK government cash for offshore research

An extra £2.5 million of government money has been allocated to support the UK offshore program. The Department of Trade and Industry is to spend the money over the next two years on baseline data gathering and impact assessments of wind farms on birds, navigation and fishing, energy minister Stephen Timms told the 26th annual conference of the British Wind Energy Association in July. The government has also set up a cross-departmental research advisory group to prioritise and co-ordinate research into the impacts of offshore renewables. This will draw on consultations with the wind industry and offshore project stakeholders.
