The UK Government have provided £40m funding for new seismic surveys which resulted in a successful 29<sup>th</sup> licensing round earlier this year. In addition, the Oil and Gas Authority have recently made freely available a substantial package of subsurface data, in order to generate interest ahead of the 30th licensing round which will be launched soon.

star this property answer text <p>The transmission charging regime is the responsibility of Ofgem as the independent regulator. Ofgem’s ‘Project Transmit’ review represented a detailed assessment of the transmission charging arrangements, and its results were implemented in April 2016. The current regime seeks to ensure that the electricity transmission system develops in the most efficient and cost-effective way for consumers, and the evidence indicates that it does not disincentivise renewable energy projects. For example, in Scotland alone, over 12 Giga Watts of renewable energy projects are contracted to connect to the transmission system over the next eight years.</p><p><strong> </strong></p> more like this
