UKCS Offshore Electrification: A Technology Roadmap

As part of the Energy Transition Alliance (ETA), formed by The Net Zero Technology Centre and the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult in 2020, we have engaged with industry stakeholders to identify the key technological challenges to enable the electrification of offshore assets in the UKCS.

The project has resulted in a roadmap for asset electrification and a targeted list of technology challenges to be addressed, including

  • Solutions to minimise shutdown time for brownfield modifications when integrating new electrical equipment.
  • Technologies to lower cost and increase reliability in transmission systems.
  • Technologies which provide a reliable and continual power supply.
  • Solutions to remove the requirement of waste heat during processing

These technology challenges will be used by the Energy Transition Alliance to focus funding on projects which align with the roadmap.
