Struck by Wind
North Sea Foundation
The accelerated growth in offshore wind farms in the North Sea poses a real threat to marine ecosystems. Risk mitigation will allow for a clean and healthy North Sea, in which both nature and offshore wind energy thrive. A concerted and collaborative approach, deployed early, can find viable, feasible and effective solutions to support the expansion of offshore wind while also providing significant ecosystem restoration services and tools to limit and mitigate their negative impacts.
The North Sea Foundation is conducting a one-year research project to define the most urgent known ecological risks of offshore wind farms in the North Sea. Together with experts and scientists, the project defines mitigating measures, looks for ways to spark innovation and identifies pioneers in the field of understanding ecological risks to wind turbines at sea.
