About this event

Designing tools for offshore transmission. How do we make robust decisions under severe uncertainty?

24 February 2022, 1-2pm

Dr Henna Bains, DEI Fellow & Post-Doctoral Research Associate in the Department of Engineering

Future offshore wind project installation often requires key planning decisions to be made under severe

uncertainty due to limited data. These uncertainties complicate the decision making process. Researchers at Durham University and ORE Catapult have been collaborating on an interdisciplinary project, and in this talk, we will present our recent research in tools for offshore wind planning under severe uncertainty. We will discuss two primary benefits to our developed tool: firstly, we include careful mathematical modelling of physical systems, and secondly, we have developed methods to support better risk-informed decisions. Following a presentation of our work, we will move into a feedback session with the aim of discussing, with input from attendees, how we might enhance and tailor the tool further to better meet the needs of the offshore wind industry.

Henna is a Post Doctoral Research Associate (PDRA) in the Department of Engineering at Durham University. Her research focuses on uncertainty handling in offshore wind planning, mainly supporting long-term planning decisions. She holds a PhD and MMath degree from Durham University. Research interests: offshore wind, power transmission and uncertainty quantification.

Durham Energy Institute

Durham Energy Institute delivers understanding, leadership and solutions for energy decarbonisation and the transition to net-zero.

About DEI

To meet current targets for reducing greenhouse emissions, addressing climate change and achieving the sustainable development goals, the global energy system needs to move towards renewable energy at unprecedented pace and scale. We need to increase sources of secure low-carbon energy, reduce fossil fuel use and change energy-use practices in our society and industry. However, to be sustainable, decarbonisation must at least avoid increasing the inequalities - and ideally, start to reduce them.

Approaching energy as socio-technical helps us to understand solutions fully and from many perspectives.

Durham Energy Institute works to ensure sustainable and resilient low-carbon energy systems can be developed which meet the needs of different contexts and ensure fair access for everyone.

Examples of our leadership in energy research include:

  • Promoting a whole-systems approach to energy research integrating the social, environmental, economic, policy, technical and regulatory implications of energy pathways and choices
  • Best practice in innovative training for future energy leaders
  • World-leading research to make Offshore Wind more affordable and reliable
  • Leading international research on smart energy solutions
  • Working with industrial clusters to developing innovative decarbonisation solutions
  • Driving forward the UK Hydrogen Revolution
  • Discovering and developing new energy materials to help achieve durable, efficient, and sustainable energy systems.

With our global partners, DEI is making a real contribution to global energy transitions and ensuring effective solutions for decarbonisation are delivered at local, regional, national and international scales.
