We use Space to make offshore windfarms more efficient and sustainable

Interview of Antonio Sarmento, President of Wavec, Portugal

Season 1, episode 51
5 min / Published

An important question is to understand how Space technologies can reduce the environmental impact, and therefore increase the sustainability, of offshore windfarms. I believe they can play a role in two ways. One is early detection of hazards and the identification of their causes. The second is better monitoring of the environmental impact associated with offshore windfarms, its impact on birds, marine mammals, and the wave wake, its impact for instance on the shoreline, or the impact of wind wake on the environment.
