Offshore Wind Innovation Hub (OWIH)

The purpose of the Offshore Wind Innovation Hub (OWIH) is to coordinate across the entire innovation landscape for offshore wind in the UK.

The Hub is funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and delivered jointly by the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult and the Knowledge Transfer Network.

The Hub will provide a coordinated UK approach to offshore wind innovation. It will:

  • Consult industry to define the sector’s innovation priorities
  • Inform government of sector priorities
  • Convene industry to respond to funding calls most effectively
  • Promote the industry’s priorities and successes through domestic and international platforms

How will the Hub operate?


Offshore Wind Innovation Exchange

The Hub’s first programme will be OWiX – the Offshore Wind Innovation Exchange. This cross-sector scheme will aim to accelerate the cost reduction of offshore wind by matching industry challenges with innovative solutions adapted from other parts of the economy. It will also provide new opportunities for UK business across industries..

The Offshore Wind Innovation Hub platform is now live. To find out more about the OWIH, please contact ORE Catapult Project Manager Jonny Flowers.

For further details about OWiX, please contact Dr Nee-Joo Teh at the Knowledge Transfer Network.
