In the main scenarios of this year’s BP Energy Outlook, global energy demand continues to grow for at least part of the period to 2050. However, over this time, the structure of energy demand fundamentally shifts, with a declining role for fossil fuels offset by an increasing share for renewable energy and a growing role for electricity. Decisive policy measures, such as significant increases in carbon prices, are needed to deliver a lasting reduction in emissions from energy use.
Norwegian energy company Equinor has entered into an agreement with oil major BP, creating a strategic partnership in offshore wind in the US covering both current and potential future projects.
Scotland has good technical capability to support offshore wind port functions in some locations, but there is a significant risk that existing port capacity will be insufficient to support the offshore wind build-out rates required in Scottish waters to meet the UK-wide net-zero target, a new report by Crown Estate Scotland reveals.
French energy giant Total has entered a partnership with Macquarie’s Green Investment Group (GIG) to develop a portfolio of five large floating offshore wind projects in South Korea with a potential cumulated capacity of more than 2 GW.
