The P2G Coordination Group

The work is supported by the P2G Coordination Group. This group have prioritised a list of the 10 biggest environmental and consenting challenges that are causing delays and uncertainty in offshore wind consenting and are working together to resolve these challenges by:

- Maintaining an overview of all the work in consents, licencing and the environment relating to P2G; 

- Seeking feedback from their organisations on what is already being done or is needed to provide resolution to the identified barriers;

- Ensuring that these actions complement and enhance the work of existing work programmes and strategic groups;

- Defining a clear road map with commitments to meet the 2030 and net-zero targets; and

- Initiating new work efficiently through existing groups and bodies where gaps emerge or, if this is not possible, identify and drive the relevant means to address the gap.
