Guernsey Renewable Sources Need More Years to Become Operational

Guernsey Electricity Sources Will not Be Replaced by Renewable Power

According to the States renewable energy policy advisor, Matt Des Forges, the Guernsey electricity sources will not be replaced by wind, wave and tidal power.

He added that the renewable energy sources will take at least another eight years to become fully operational. Until then, the cost of these remains high, BBC News reports.

Des Forges said: “Renewable energy is intermittent, the wind doesn’t always blow and the tides are not always flowing so the cables and conventional on island generation will always be very important to Guernsey“, adding that some of their energy should come from renewable sources.

Substructures for UK Offshore Wind

Design, construction and installation

Optimising offshore substructures is one of the key challenges for reducing LCOE. Foundation designers have produced a variety of different solutions: monopiles, GBS, jackets, suction buckets and floating foundations. Looking at U.K. projects – different soils, water depths,fabrication timelines and installation challengescreate many questions for the industry to solve. We’re entering uncharted territory; projects arelarger, farther and more complex than ever completed.

Now is the time to have a close look at lessons learnt and define the room for improvement for the U.K. wind industry.
