UK Government Publishes Report on Offshore Wind Supply Chain

The UK Department for Business, Innovation & Skills, along with the Department for Energy & Climate Change, has published a report on capabilities and opportunities of the UK's offshore wind supply chain.

The report, produced by BVG Associates, presents a first ‘map’ of the UK offshore wind supply chain in the UK. It identifies its strengths and weaknesses and the potential for businesses in each area to benefit economically from the growth in European offshore wind farm development, construction and operation.

For the industry, it provides a resource to help it to grow UK supply, recognising that for the offshore wind industry to retain its momentum, it needs to significantly increase the economic benefit for the UK. For the Government, it provides a high level evidence base to inform the delivery of the Industrial Strategy.
