Last week I was present at the founding of the ‘Offshore Energy Alliance.’ This group wishes to ensure that businesses come participate in Round 4 and other opportunities for offshore wind in the UK. The challenge is significant as the government has committed to 40GW total by 2030 which represents quadrupling of current operational capacity.
The meeting was well attended by businesses’ grateful for the opportunity of early engagement with an industry set upon a massive trajectory of significant sustained growth
The questions emerging from the floor were well- informed and showed a good knowledge of innovation, I was pleased stakeholders recognised that different opportunities presented for example by floating versus fixed foundation wind turbines. Also asked of the panel was whether ‘machine learning’ is an innovation of interest to the offshore wind industry.
