Offshore Wind Industry Progress

The renewable industry in Scotland currently delivers 25% of the UK’s total renewable generation capacity. The UK leads the world in offshore wind with 7.9GW in operation and a further 6.2GW in construction.

Following the announcement that CFD auctions will take place every two years from 2019, it is anticipated that the offshore wind sector will treble its generation capacity to 30GW by 2030 but this will only be achieved with direct input of the local supply chain.

The event will focus on lessons learned in previous CFD auctions, the opportunities expected now and how the industry will evolve for future rounds. Our speakers will present on competition, innovation and skills to help prepare Scottish supply chain companies to position themselves best.

This event is for both new market entrants and those established in the supply chain across all tiers.
