Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) can support the installation of ocean energy, for example by shortening the consenting processes. However, current plans often fail to include ocean energy sector or its future needs.
In this webinar, you will hear experts discussing MSP approaches and opportunities to the ocean energy sector, how some national maritime spatial plans are being implemented and what they can offer to a more effective ocean energy deployment.
