Offshore wind is an essential part of the UK’s energy mix and industrial strategy. Offshore wind already generates 5 per cent of the UK’s electricity and by 2021 this will to double to over 10 per cent. Building out the current pipeline of offshore wind projects could supply over a third of the UK’s power needs. The industry is investing over £18bn in projects over the next five years and offshore wind will be one of the lowest cost sources of new power in the 2020s. 

To continue developing into the next decade and beyond, offshore wind requires sustained political support from Government and Parliament. RenewableUK and partner companies are working to deliver Offshore Wind Week 2016, which will run from 31 October to 4 November and celebrate the growth of this industry and the benefits it is delivering for Britain. Bringing together companies from across the UK, Offshore Wind Week aims to help deepen policymakers understanding of, and support for, the offshore wind industry.
