Chapter 1: introduction
Background of the study
England and Wales show considerable potential for the generation of additional renewable energy through the involvement of offshore wind farms which are constructed inside and around the sea in the region. The Wind farms have the potential of increasing the overall capacity for energy production which is needed to facilitate industrial growth around the ports in England and Wales. The expansion of offshore wind farms is significant to England and Wales since it presents a viable opportunity for the region to utilize safer energy, but based on the terms of navigation and generation of wind power as a form of renewable energy in the offshore domain. Moreover, utilizing offshore wind power serves as a significant contribution towards ensuring the security of the jurisdiction by way of diversified channels of the generation of renewable energy. According to Bailey et al., another notable benefit associated with the overall expansion of the power generation capacity by wind farms is that the approach creates employment opportunities. Therefore, this study acknowledges potential presented by the wind farms in the generation of renewable energy in England and Wales while delving into the necessary legal and regulatory framework that could potentially affect the actualization of the goal in the energy domain in the jurisdiction as emphasized by Anatec (2017). The legal framework is envisaged to facilitate the effective evaluation of the impact of wind farms during the preliminary phases by way of assessment of the environment for the applications. For instance, the adequacy of the existing framework in promoting wind farms to engage in offshore renewable energy generation is an important aspect in enabling for the attainment of plans particularly beyond the scope of territorial waters. Therefore, the assessment and regulation of offshore wind farms in power generation show the need for both domestic and international frameworks to govern the conduct of players in the renewable energy sector in England and Wales.[Maritime and Coastguard Agency.
