Researchers at Bangor University’s renowned School of Ocean Sciences are part of a major new UK consortium which has just won £2.5 million in funding from the Natural Environment Research Council, one of the main bodies which funds UK research, with £639,000 coming to Bangor University.

The significant award will be used to investigate what environmental impacts the proposed development of a new generation of floating wind farms might have on the marine environment. Following the huge success of the development offshore wind as a renewable energy source over the past decade, a further fourfold expansion in this form of energy capture is seen as the backbone to the UK (and many other coastal nations) pathway to achieving NetZero by 2050.
