Marine Energy Research Symposium March 2020

The 3rd ScotMER symposium took place in March 2020, and focused on research and monitoring around offshore wind developments on the east coast of Scotland. The symposium was opened by Paul Wheelhouse MSP, Minister for Energy, Connectivity and The Islands. He spoke on the importance of monitoring and the need for further research in the industry. Attendees at the symposium included industry, academia, nature conservation organisations, regulators, and advisory bodies.

A wide range of topics were presented and discussed, including monitoring work conducted by current offshore wind developers on the East Coast of Scotland and developing guidance that could affect the focus of this work. The symposium also provided a platform for environmental NGOs, the fishing industry, advisory bodies and regulatory bodies to present on future challenges for the industry and socioeconomic and environmental research.
