A Consultation has been launched on the Sectoral Marine Plan for Offshore Wind for Innovation and Targeted Oil and Gas Decarbonisation (INTOG).
This new planning round is designed to identify new potential areas for offshore wind development that will specifically target the electrification of oil and gas infrastructure in Scottish waters (out to 200 NM). This round will also examine potential options for smaller (<100 MW) innovation or test and demonstration projects in our waters.
This plan will look to deliver viable and sustainable offshore wind projects in areas identified as suitable for future development and examined through detailed environmental, socio-economic and spatial assessments, combined with stakeholder and public engagement.

The consultation is open until 20 October 2021.
