The Crown Estate has today launched Offshore Wind Leasing Round 4, opening up the potential for at least 7 GW of new seabed rights for offshore wind development in the waters around England and Wales - enough to meet the electricity needs of over six million homes.

Thanks for sharing, Jochem. When I see the stories about the Crown Estate & its leasing for wind, I always wonder if the fact that these assets are owned by the Crown affects them in any way. For example, are they more likely to take a loss for the sake of bolstering the future of wind? Or are there potential conflicts of interest they have to navigate?

Do you have any insights, Jochem?
