A stakeholder-grounded evaluation of the seven functions model of technological innovation systems theory in UK offshore wind and marine renewables. (2020)
Thesis
ALDERSEY-WILLIAMS, J. 2020. A stakeholder-grounded evaluation of the seven functions model of technological innovation systems theory in UK offshore wind and marine renewables. Robert Gordon University [online], PhD thesis. Available from: https://openair.rgu.ac.uk

Technological innovation systems theory (TIS) provides a useful framework within which to consider energy transitions. The "seven functions" framework allows researchers to examine the progress of emergence of new technologies, but has not hitherto b...

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 increasingly need to balance the requirements of energy demand, security and costs: they need accurate estimates of performance. This paper uses public data to assess UK offshore wind farm performance to improve policy decisions. It find...
