Can Combining with Other Blue Sectors Further Reduce Offshore Wind’s LCOE? This was the question that Mike Blanch of BVG Associates addressed at Global Offshore Wind earlier this week.
MARIBE is analysing 23 potential commercial combination projects between Blue Growth or Blue Economy sectors including: Offshore wind energy (fixed and floating), wave energy, fixed shipping terminal, aquaculture, oil & gas, and desalination. Multi-use of space and multi-use platforms. Atlantic, Mediterranean, Baltic/North Sea, and Caribbean locations.
Mike’s presentation described the nine combinations with offshore wind and provided an analysis of whether these combinations really can reduce LCOE. Slides for the presentation are available here: MARIBE Global Offshore Wind Presentation
