Abstract
    Interest in renewable energy technologies is steadily increasing as international and national mechanisms are developed to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and to address the effects of climate change. In recent years national authorities and developers have been exploring options for the potential development of offshore wind-farms. This assessment explores the status of offshore wind-farm development within the OSPAR area in terms of the current scale and planned potential schemes, and the environmental effects of this. Its conclusions relate to the effects that all offshore wind-farm developments under construction and operational within the OSPAR area have and how these affect the quality status of the OSPAR maritime area.
