Podcast: The Role of Robotics in the Future of Offshore Wind and Net Zero

We are thrilled to share details of a recent podcast, featuring Dr. Theo Lim of the Smart Systems Group. This broadcast was episode 24 of the Re-energise Podcast series, hosted by the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult.

“Our clean energy revolution is in full swing, with the UK actively moving from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources such as offshore wind. If the UK is to meet its net-zero targets by 2050, our offshore wind capacity needs to expand more than seven times over. This future scale-up of operations, pushing into ever deeper waters, will need the help of robotics and autonomous systems for maintenance and repair to become a reality.”

In this episode:
Alex Louden, Senior Technology Acceleration Manager, ORE Catapult
– Dr. Theo Lim, Human Robot Interaction, Robot Design and Soft Robotics, Bioinspired Approaches, Heriot-Watt University
Dr. Simon Watson, Senior Lecturer in Robotic Systems, University of Manchester
Brodie Clark, Lead Robotics Software Engineer, BladeBUG
