Slashing consenting time to 12 months (or less)

As ocean energy is a relatively new sector, lack of details about the potential impact to marine environment leads to cautious approaches on risk assessment. This can slow down consenting and delay deployments. In this session, you will hear about the best practices already in place and recommendations on new approaches to accelerate consenting of ocean energy.
