The COWRIE-funded report 'A baseline assessment of electromagnetic fields generated by offshore windfarm cables' was produced by the Centre for Marine and Coastal Studies at the University of Liverpool and econnect Ltd.
The report addresses the following questions:
- The likely EMF emitted from a subsea power cable
- A suggested method to measure EMF in the field, which could be applied by windfarm developers or in future projects
- Guidance of mitigation measures to reduce EMF
- Consideration of the results for the next stage of investigation into the effects of EMF on electrosensitive species
