The Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult has welcomed the publication today (Wednesday 20th December) of the Scottish Government’s new Energy Strategy. Chris Hill, Operational Performance Director of the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult, said:

“We welcome the Scottish Government’s commitment to providing half of all Scotland’s energy needs from renewable sources by 2030.

“We are particularly pleased to see a commitment to developing Scotland’s offshore wind, wave and tidal industries. This will be achieved through nurturing an innovative and competitive supply chain and through supporting research, development and demonstration activities, such as those undertaken at our Glasgow headquarters and our Levenmouth Demonstration Turbine in Fife.

“The measures outlined today present a substantial opportunity for Scotland’s innovative businesses to share in the opportunities presented by the development of these industries, delivering export opportunities, economic benefit and jobs in Scotland and across the UK.”
