Offshore wind is rapidly emerging as the future of green energy production, but it brings new challenges to maritime security. With the expansion of wind farms, underwater cables, hydrogen pipelines, and energy islands, regional seas are becoming more congested and vulnerable to terrorism, crime, and hostile state activities.
In a new article forthcoming in the Ocean Yearbook, Christian Bueger and Tim Edmunds explore these evolving threats and the need to rethink the objectives of maritime security and its link to energy security. Check out the pre-print here to learn more.
The article is part of our research focus on critical maritime infrastructure protection.
