Marine-i has agreed to support a new approach to using space data to support the development of renewable energy sites, such as floating offshore wind. The project is the brainchild of 4 Earth Intelligence (4EI) 4EI provides Applied Earth Intelligence and analytics.
They gather evidence-based intelligence about the Earth using data collected through sophisticated space assets. Satellite Earth Observation can provide data on a range of indicators, including weather, sea state, environmental impacts, vessel activity and thermal signatures. 4EI engaged with the Marine-i project in order to gain support for the first stage of the project, which is to identify Earth Observation data sources and align these with traditional and “bankable” consenting information. This research stage will lead to a commercialisation plan for integrating space data and services into the offshore renewables sector.
