The UK is a global leader in offshore wind and attracts investment from all over the globe. Our ambition of 50GW by 2030 is world leading as we have a strong pipeline of projects and the world’s five largest operational offshore windfarms.

We are stimulating investment and creating new jobs and making £960 million available for a Green Industries Growth Accelerator to support green manufacturing alongside £160m to kick start investment in port infrastructure. Industry has supported our action with Renewable UK’s CEO welcoming this Government’s strong commitment to the sector.
