Journal Article
ALDERSEY-WILLIAMS, J., STRACHAN, P.A. and BROADBENT, I.D. 2020. Validating the 'seven Functions' model of technological innovations systems theory with industry stakeholders: a review from UK offshore renewables. Energies [online], 13(24), article ID 6673. Available from: https://doi.org/10.3390/en13246673

Technological Innovation Systems theory, and its 'functions' framework, have demonstrated their value as tools for exploring socio-technological transitions. Although the 'seven functions' model has demonstrated its academic value across a vast liter...

Analysis of United Kingdom offshore wind farm performance using public data: improving the evidence base for policymaking. (2019)
Journal Article
ALDERSEY-WILLIAMS, J., BROADBENT, I.D. and STRACHAN, P.A. 2020. Analysis of United Kingdom offshore wind farm performance using public data: improving the evidence base for policymaking. Utilities policy [online], 62, article ID 100985. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jup.2019.100985

Policymakers and regulators increasingly need to balance the requirements of energy demand, security and costs, and to do so they need accurate estimates of performance. This study uses public data to assess UK offshore wind farm performance to impro...

Refusal of planning consent for the Docking Shoal offshore wind farm: stakeholder perspectives and lessons learned. (2019)
Journal Article
BROADBENT, I.D. and NIXON, C.L.B. 2019. Refusal of planning consent for the Docking Shoal offshore wind farm: stakeholder perspectives and lessons learned. Marine policy [online], 110, article ID 103529. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.marpol.2019.103529

The Docking Shoal project was developed by Centrica as part of The Crown Estate’s Round 2 of UK offshore wind licensing. After 8 years of development, the project was ultimately refused planning consent by the Secretary of State for Energy and Climat...

Better estimates of LCOE from audited accounts: a new methodology with examples from United Kingdom offshore wind and CCGT. (2019)
Journal Article
ALDERSEY-WILLIAMS, J., BROADBENT, I.D. and STRACHAN, P.A. 2019. Better estimates of LCOE from audited accounts: a new methodology with examples from United Kingdom offshore wind and CCGT. Energy policy [online], 128, pages 25-35. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.enpol.2018.12.044

Around the world, government policies to support new renewable energy technologies rely on accurate estimates of Levelised Cost of Energy (LCOE). This paper reveals that such estimates are based on 'public domain' data which may be unreliable. A new...
