New report warns technical investment necessary to ensure offshore wind’s role in Europe’s renewable energy mix

Arthur D. Little urges offshore wind energy developers to improve upon 60 per cent availability through dedicated offshore testing facilities, R&D investment, and industry collaboration

Despite being clean, green, and supported by policy makers, according to a report released today by global management consultancy Arthur D. Little, offshore wind faces significant barriers to cementing its position as a key component of Europe's future renewable energy mix. The new study, "All at sea", suggests that despite strong progress to date, supply constraints, logistical difficulties, and technical barriers could lead to stalled expansion in the sector, with wide-reaching implications for meeting EU renewable energy targets and the industry's development outside of Europe, particularly in the US and Asia.

Arthur D. Little warns utilities providers: traditional forecast models cannot predict future energy mix

Low-carbon economy adds new pressures to utility providers' valuation models for future generation

In an energy market marked by great uncertainty, energy utility companies are ill-equipped to make the major decisions they face in choosing future sources of power generation, according to a report released today by Arthur D. Little in cooperation with the Dresden University of Technology and Opexis GmbH. The new study, “Real options for the future energy mix” suggests that in an economic climate marked by depleting natural resources and increasing legislative requirements for climate protection, the traditional methods utility companies use to determine what energy sources and facilities to invest in no longer apply. The result, according to Arthur D. Little, is the current trend of potentially fruitful investment opportunities being undervalued, and therefore not pursued by utilities companies. [...]
