The article reports that the Crown Estate has opened the bidding process for companies that want to develop a third round of offshore windfarms to meet targets for renewable energy. The Crown Estate, which owns the seabed, said it had a central role in delivery of the windfarms, but that once they were operating its only role would be to provide leases. The companies will be able to negotiate for projects in nine zones identified by the British government.
