A new approach using space data for development of renewable energy sites will receive support from Cornwall-based marine innovation project Marine-i.

Developed by space data specialist 4EI, the new approach aims to help reduce the risks and costs associated with the development of renewable energy sites such as floating offshore wind.

Marine-i is a collaboration between the Universities of Exeter and Plymouth, The Cornwall College Group, Cornwall Marine Network, Cornwall Development Company and the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult. The project is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

Satellite Earth Observation can provide data on a range of indicators such as weather, sea state, environmental impacts, vessel activity and thermal signatures.
