On 10 December 2007 my right honourable friend the Secretary of State announced the launch of a strategic environmental assessment (SEA) on a draft plan for up to 25 gigawatts of new offshore wind development rights in UK waters. These proposals could lead to increasing our current plans of up to 8 gigawatts for offshore wind to up to 33 gigawatts.

We are undertaking a full assessment this year of our draft plan for offshore development. Following the results of the SEA, we expect to make a decision on whether to proceed with our draft plan in early 2009.
