RenewableUK has launched a new industry group to set out the floating offshore wind industry’s strategy for large-scale deployment of floating wind farms in the UK, in partnership with Scottish Renewables.

A new group, the Floating Wind Steering Group, will meet regularly with the aim of producing a consensus vision for the future of floating wind, and the business case for its continued development in the UK. The group includes representatives from developers and supply chain companies, and from regions around the UK.  

Floating offshore wind was mentioned in the Offshore Wind Sector Deal, and the industry recognises that new technology will be valuable in helping the Government reach 50GW of offshore wind generation by 2050.

Commenting on the initiative, Emma Pinchbeck, Deputy CEO at RenewableUK said: “The UK has a unique opportunity to pioneer a new technology which has a truly global potential. Industry leaders are working together to ensure that Government seizes that opportunity. As we step up decarbonisation of the energy system, competitive new technologies like floating wind will be good for consumers.”  

Jenny Hogan, Deputy Chief Executive at Scottish Renewables said: “Innovation is key to the long-term growth set out in the Offshore Wind Sector Deal and floating turbines will open up new areas in deeper waters, particularly off the coast of Scotland with new sites for development currently being considered. Globally, much of the offshore wind potential is in deeper waters that will need floating technology, so this sector offers new industrial opportunities across the UK.”
