As part of the INTOG (Innovation and Targeted Oil & Gas) leasing round, 13 projects have been selected to support green innovation and help decarbonise the North Sea

Crown Estate Scotland has announced the results of the world’s first leasing round designed to enable offshore wind energy to directly supply offshore oil and gas platforms. 

Responding, Scottish Renewables’ Chief Executive, Claire Mack said:

“Today’s announcement from Crown Estate Scotland is one step forward on the road to the industrial decarbonisation of Scotland.

“It is essential that INTOG is aligned with ScotWind and its commitments to the Scottish supply chain which should enable strong collaboration between projects to invest and support Scottish suppliers with the delivery of these projects.

“ScotWind will be at the forefront of the drive to achieve Scotland’s net-zero ambitions and must remain the priority as we see an increase in demand for resources and connections to the electricity network.

“We recognise that the marine planning process is already under significant pressure and urge The Scottish Government to ensure that appropriate resources are in place across key bodies to enable deployment of ScotWind and INTOG at the pace and scale required to achieve a secure, affordable, low-carbon energy system.”
