Offshore Energy

Also, BU recently published the offshore paper – link.

The price of oil had been all over the place – in fact, I think it’s all the way up to $70 today, which is great.  So I don’t expect much interest in many of the proposals anytime soon.  Additionally, from a technical perspective, there are more viable energy alternatives than renewables in many contexts in my opinion.

That said, many of the considerations apply to any ecosystem with disparate technical developments and at a high level, I still think it’s a worthwhile read if you’re in the offshore sector.  Subsidies, diversification, etc. are still motivating technical adoption so some level of coordination is still prudent.
