In the current auction-based electricity market, the design of utility-scale renewable energy systems has traditionally been driven by the levelised cost of energy (LCoE). However, the market is gradually moving towards a subsidy-free era, which will expose the power plant owners to the fluctuating prices of electricity. This paper presents a...

The deployment of offshore wind in the UK has seen a rapid increase in the past decade and will continue to increase with the securement of the recent Scotwind sites. Floating platforms will be utilised for 60% of these new sites, creating opportunities to try new platform typologies and further solidify the validity of existing concepts....

The development and deployment of offshore wind farms in the last decade have seen a dramatic increase, now totalling 743 GW globally (Global Wind Energy Council, 2022). This rapid increase is expected to further continue now with the potential to explore deeper sites with the adoption of floating offshore platforms. Proof of this growth has...

New wind turbine technologies and designs are being explored in order to reduce the cost of energy from offshore wind farms. Two potential routes to a lower cost of energy are the X- Rotor Concept (XRC) and Multi-Rotor System (MRS) turbines. A key cost saving for both Novel concepts included in this paper is operation and maintenance (O&M...

Coastal resilience is often achieved by traditional civil engineering projects, such as dikes and breakwaters. However, given the pressing nature of Climate Change, integrating energy converters in “classical” structures can enhance innovation, and help in pursuing decarbonisation targets. In this work, we present an alternative for integrating...
