The ORI is a new research partnership between the University of Dundee; the University of Aberdeen; and Robert Gordon University focused on developing and delivering solutions to the offshore wind industry, in the North Sea and globally. The vision is to become the recognised global authority on the delivery and implementation of offshore renewable energy.
The ORI offers an interdisciplinary and integrated approach bringing together experts, researchers, and knowledge from different disciplines and all three university partners to confront challenges faced by Industry and Government in delivering and managing the offshore wind industry across four main themes.
“The Secretary of State provided a strong indication of how the UK government intends to roll out the separate island strike price for onshore wind and reiterated both governments’ commitment to overcome any barriers to electricity interconnectors to the islands"
