Natural Power welcomes Offshore Wind Sector Deal

In a deal between the government and the offshore wind sector, industry players have agreed to invest £250m over the next 11 years in exchange for participation in £557m of state subsidies for renewable energy.

They now meet around 7 per cent of our power needs but that should increase to more than 30 per cent within a decade.

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy said the Offshore Wind Sector Deal included a £250m offshore wind growth partnership, meant to ensure companies working in relevant coastal regions "continue to be competitive and are leaders internationally in the next generation of offshore wind innovations".

The Global Wind Energy Council and the World Bank Group announced plans on Thursday to cooperate on efforts to develop new offshore wind in emerging markets.

James Ritchie, Chairman of Energi Coast and CEO of Tekmar Group plc, said: "The Sector Deal for the offshore wind industry is a significant step forward in creating a sustainable industry and providing real value creation to our local supply chain, which is fit and ready to serve our growing sector".

BEIS said the deal would involve increasing the amount of participation by United Kingdom companies in offshore wind projects to 60% to ensure that the benefits of the investment go to communities "from Fife to the Isle of Wight".

It also aims to triple jobs in the sector to 27,000 by 2030 while improving diversity.
