All renewable energy projects greater than 300MW, and all Floating Offshore Wind projects bidding for support via a Contract for Difference must submit a Supply Chain Plan to the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero. In this plan, they must set out the actions they will take to improve their supply chain. Among these, applicants must set out how they are increasing the visibility of opportunities to make it easier for smaller firms to win contracts. They must also set out specifically how they are helping small and medium enterprises and new entrants into the renewables sector.
