Abstract With increasing utilisation of renewable energy sources, there are many cases where the ability to site generation of electricity within easy reach of demand becomes more limited (e.g. offshore wind farms). More remote locations are more costly to connect to electricity networks or pipelines. Additionally, intermittency of renewable energy sources places a greater emphasis on the use of energy storage to balance the different variations in supply and demand over time. Transporting stored energy is one possible way to address these concerns simultaneously. The aim of the project was to understand and quantify transporting energy for a number of different scenarios. Cases were developed for offshore wind farms located off the UK and concentrated solar in the Sahara. A range of options were then analysed for transporting and transmitting energy from source to demand with the different approached quantified and compared
