The Department for International Trade (DIT) undertakes a range of promotion activities to support exports from the renewable energy sector, including those under the ‘GREAT’ campaign, further information about which can be found on DIT’s website. Engagement with UK exporters forms part of the work of DIT’s sector teams – one of which specifically focuses on renewable energy technologies – as well as our international network of trade and investment advisors, with renewable energy and clean growth key themes.

For example, last year the Department worked closely with Taiwan which included the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding to open up Taiwan’s offshore wind opportunities for UK companies. The offshore wind sector deal commits DIT and industry to increase offshore wind exports fivefold to £2.6 billion by 2030.
