VIDEO: UK Government Needs to Commit to Offshore Wind, Panel Says

A debate titled "Stick or twist? The next government's choices on offshore wind", held on 13 November 2014, explored the trade-offs the UK government will need to make between deployment, policy certainty and cost reduction.

Panellists included: Matthew Knight, (Siemens Energy), Ian Temperton (Climate Change Capital), Colin Morgan (DNV-GL Renewables), and Aram Wood (Statkraft).

The panel was chaired by Phillip Inman (The Guardian).

Matthew Spencer kicked off the debate. He outlined the need for government to commit to a minimum market size for offshore wind in the 2020s, particularly for the supply chain whose investment timescales are longer than those of developers.
