AIM - A coordinated roll-out of North Sea Wind Power Hubs facilitates an accelerated deployment of large scale offshore wind in the North Sea required to support realizing the Paris Agreements target in time, with minimum environmental impact and at the lowest cost for society (urgency & cost savings), while maintaining security of supply.
VISION -The North Sea Wind Power Hub Consortium initial study and test results are gathered in six concept papers. The goal of the concept papers is to inform North Sea stakeholders, and the general public, of the results the NSWPH has obtained working on the modular Hub-and-Spoke concept over the last two years. The six concept papers tell one story: from the challenge to meet the Paris Agreement, through the solution building on the modular Hub-and-Spoke concept, to the next steps required to meet the Paris Agreement timely and in a cost-effective manner.
If you haven't already done so, why not invite your friends and family to write to the Secretary of State.... use the sample letter.
If the UK is to meet their commitment to the Paris Agreement on greenhouse gas reductions, surely it is better to build offshore solutions for wind farm energy delivery, rather than release more emissions by digging up the countryside to lay cables and build massive substations, interconnectors and converters. The Government should take a leaf out of NSWPH's book, keep it all in one place, offshore..
"The industrialisation of The Shire was based on Tolkein’s childhood experience of the blighting of the Worcestershire countryside by the spread of heavy industry. In the Fellowship of the Ring the main protagonists have their homeland in The Shire: Frodo,Sam, Merry and Pippin all had to face great danger in their quest against grave threats to life as they knew it. I think many of the [Suffolk]communities that I have spoken to in recent months will identify with the plight of Frodo and his friends." writes Fiona Cairns, Director of Suffolk Preservation Society.
