6th Innovation Challenge (SSE Renewables)

SSE challenges innovators on two topics:

1. Flatten the curve: Producing a constant stable baseload of energy from an offshore wind farm.
2. Monitoring and mapping of ecology.

Flatten the curve

Producing a constant stable baseload of energy from an offshore wind farm.

Offshore Wind Innovators, in close cooperation with SSE Renewables and TKI Wind op Zee launches the 6th Offshore Wind Innovation Challenge! SSE Renewables is addressing two of its current challenges for offshore wind development through the Offshore Wind Innovation Challenge.

The first challenge aims to identify innovative ways to produce a constant stable baseload of energy for a continuous period from an offshore wind farm. This is expected to be achieved through a combination of offshore and onshore technology, improved forecasting, operational optimisation, energy buffering and reliability of supply.

The goal of the second challenge is to identify innovative means of collecting and interpreting data on ecological receptors within and around offshore wind farm sites, from pre-development through to decommissioning. This includes data on receptors both above and below sea level.

Monitoring and mapping of ecology

The goal of the second challenge is to identify innovative means of collecting and interpreting data on ecological receptors within and around offshore wind farm sites, from pre-development through to decommissioning. This includes data on receptors both above and below sea level.

SSE Renewables is seeking hardware, software or combined solutions to combat this challenge. This includes equipment, sensors or machines that collect data or fulfil the aim of monitoring. SSE Renewables is also searching for solutions regarding data analysis / interpretation and reporting. This includes recognition or identification technology such as, artificial intelligence, machine learning, etc.

Do you have an innovation to monitor and map the environment in an offshore wind farm?
