Description

This industrial data set describes the energy and environmental impact of the Donghai Bridge Offshore Wind Farm (DBOWF), which serves as the provision of on-grid electricity. DBOWF, being the first of its kind in China and outside Europe, is a pioneer in offshore wind generation, providing insights into the life cycle of wind farm infrastructure including stages from material manufacturing, sea transportation, installation, operation, and maintenance to dismantling and recycling. This data is applicable to sectors involved in energy infrastructure, renewable energy analysis, and environmental impact assessments of offshore wind farms. When utilizing this data for Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of offshore wind farms, users should adhere to the methodological framework specified in the PLCA modeling approach. The assessment should cover the required stages of material and equipment manufacturing, transportation, installation, operation, maintenance, dismantlement, and recycling. Care should be taken to factor in local practices and specific energy consumption and emissions data for China, as these may differ significantly from other regions. The sensitivity analysis provided in this data set regarding uncertainties should guide data interpretation and result in adjustments where necessary. For a functional unit, the basis should be the provision of 1 kWh of on-grid electricity.
