Equally, the course aims to provide students with a broad vocabulary of offshore wind and the confidence to engage with offshore wind professionals in a coherent manner. Content will include an overview of offshore wind technology and its increasingly important role in power generation; the process of permitting, site construction and operation; the opportunities for the USA’s emergent offshore wind sector to make its mark globally, and an introduction to those currently leading the development of this burgeoning, global industry.

Learning Objectives:

On successful completion of this module, students will have a good understanding of:

  • The energy mix and offshore wind’s role in it
  • Where offshore wind developments can be found around the world
  • Onshore versus offshore wind – the key differences
  • Who is big in offshore wind - ‘developers’ and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs)
  • The stages required to bring an offshore wind farm to life
