Episode 24 - The Role of Robotics in the Future of Offshore Wind and Net Zero The Re-Energise Podcast

    • Business

Our clean energy revolution is in full swing, with the UK actively moving from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources such as offshore wind. If the UK is to meet its net-zero targets by 2050, our offshore wind capacity needs to expand more than seven times over. This future scale-up of operations, pushing into ever deeper waters, will need the help of robotics and autonomous systems for maintenance and repair to become a reality.

In this month's episode, we're joined by:
- Alex Louden, Senior Technology Acceleration Manager, ORE Catapult
- Dr Theo Lim, Human Robot Interaction, Robot Design and Soft Robotics, Bioinspired Approaches, Heriot-Watt University
- Dr Simon Watson, Senior Lecturer in Robotic Systems, University of Manchester
- Brodie Clark, Lead Robotics Software Engineer, BladeBUG
