Realising the Sector Deal Opportunity

ORE Catapult Burbo Bank Offshore Wind

In March 2019, the UK Government and offshore wind industry agreed a transformative Sector Deal, securing offshore wind’s position at the heart of the future UK energy mix as a large-scale, low-carbon form of electricity.

In this series of four Analysis & Insight papers, we explore the key challenges and opportunities presented in delivering the Sector Deal. From sustainable cost reduction to the supply chain’s opportunities and challenges, the Catapult’s expert team of analysts will dig deep to bring you unique insights that you won’t find anywhere else.

This first paper, by Miriam Noonan, sets the context of the current and future outlook for UK offshore wind, introducing the main aspects of the Sector Deal and outlining the topics to be addressed in the remainder of this series. Covering the offshore wind industry’s cost reduction trend, the UK’s project pipeline, and looking forward to 2030 and enabling the Sector Deal’s ambitions, this is essential reading for anyone involved in renewable energy in the UK.
