The Energy & Infrastructure (E&I) team

Crown Estate Scotland’s Energy & Infrastructure (E&I) team are responsible for managing the leasing of the seabed for activities such as offshore wind, wave & tidal energy, cables (electrical and telecommunications), pipelines (oil & gas), and Carbon Capture & Storage (CCS). As such the team has a vital role to play in enabling and achieving Scotland’s net-zero aspirations.

Combating Climate Change

To address the climate emergency both UK and Scottish Governments have made it clear that more renewable energy is needed and that CCS must be progressed at scale.

Scotland’s waters are where much of this development will need to happen, creating significant economic opportunity for Scotland. To help maximise this opportunity, Crown Estate Scotland will be undertaking more activity, and are consequently expanding their E&I team.
