Scotland has a proud maritime and industrial heritage, and in modern times has drawn prosperity from its oil and gas industry. Scotland has also looked to the emerging offshore wind industry as a route to prosperity, though growth has been slow in comparison to its original ambition.

Realism is needed, however. Scotland will remain a small global market for offshore wind, even if offshore wind is vital for Scotland’s successful energy transition. Success must come from focusing on what activities can best be done in Scotland and which Scotland can be world-class in delivering.

Our assessment is clear that there are opportunities within Scotland’s grasp if an effective partnership is forged between the offshore wind industry, Scottish ports and Government. Each of these three partners must play a role, and we need to see collaborative frameworks emerge that mean we can rapidly move beyond the status quo.
