RICORE PROJECT. . RiCORE: risk based consenting for offshore renewables. [Project booklet]. Aberdeen: RGU.
The RiCORE project has been charged with promoting a risk-based approach to the consenting of offshore renewable energy. The cost and time taken to conduct environmental impact assessment remains one of the key barriers to the deployment of offshore energy arrays. Costly and time-consuming environmental surveys are a prerequisite, even for known technologies in areas of low environmental sensitivity. There is little standardisation across different EU Member States in terms of the regulatory environment, how the consenting process is administered, and the interpretation of EU environmental legislation.
