The Crown Estate has today issued a press release which outlines that, in line with the Government’s ambition to deliver 1GW of floating offshore wind by 2030, we will be undertaking a market engagement exercise to help shape any potential new leasing offer for floating offshore wind. This market engagement exercise will commence today and close in mid-December.

Whilst we consider our approach to any new leasing for floating offshore wind, the current test and demonstration opportunity for up to 100MW will be temporarily paused for new applications with immediate effect.
