Developing Beacon: Zero carbon offshore power

Zero carbon offshore power is a developing Bath Beacon to address challenges associated with renewable technologies, particularly wind and tidal turbines.

About the developing Beacon

More on the developing Bath Beacon for zero carbon offshore power.


Wind turbines at sea

This developing Beacon, led by Dr Anna Young, focuses on renewable technologies, particularly wind, wave and tidal power. The Beacon addresses the challenges associated with large-scale deployment of these technologies, aiming to generate a future-focussed design philosophy that encompasses both technical performance and environmental impacts. The work will inform government policy as the next steps are taken towards net-zero.

This project brings together experts in the technical, financial and environmental aspects of renewable power from across the Faculty of Engineering and Design. The Zero Carbon Offshore Power Beacon welcomes involvement from a broader range of disciplines, such as understanding public perceptions of these technologies, consumer behaviour and fluctuations in energy availability. Through the Beacon, we will connect with partners in the GW4 Climate Alliance and relevant Supergen Hubs.
