OWSMRF (Offshore Wind Strategic Monitoring & Research Forum) Project Documents 2019


The Offshore Wind Strategic Monitoring Research Forum (OWSMRF) is an industry-led collaborative forum that aims to identify and develop research to fill critical knowledge gaps in our understanding of the impact of offshore wind development on the marine environment. OWSMRF was initiated by JNCC and six leading offshore wind developers: EDF-Renewables, Equinor, Innogy, Ørsted, Scottish Power Renewables, and Vattenfall. In the pilot year the group aims to better understand the potential impact of large-scale deployment of offshore wind on protected bird populations, especially in light of UK offshore wind ambitions to increase capacity to 30 gigawatts (GW) by 2030.
