New Offshore Wind Innovation Hub website turns spotlight on sector innovation priorities

Lynn and Inner Dowsing offshore wind farm.

 

The Offshore Wind Innovation Hub (OWIH), designed to coordinate UK offshore wind innovation, will launch its new website on Thursday 11 May, which includes an evidence-based identification of UK offshore wind innovation priorities, supply chain growth opportunities and a comprehensive view of the funding landscape.

The Hub, and its first programme the Offshore Wind Innovation Exchange (OWIX), is backed by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and delivered jointly by the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult and Innovate UK’s Knowledge Transfer Network.

The Hub’s website will act as the focal point for the UK offshore wind industry and the public sector – providing government and industry with evidence-based and validated information on the key innovation priorities within the sector and impact these can have. It will also provide information on the national and international funding programmes available for technology development and will build consortia of organisations who can collectively address the innovation priorities identified.

Dr Stephen Wyatt, Research & Disruptive Innovation Director at ORE Catapult, said: “The OWIH has an important role to play in helping the UK’s technology-based businesses seize the tremendous opportunities in the offshore wind market.  It will ensure that the UK’s world-class technologies and services remain at the forefront of innovation and are promoted internationally, further growing the UK’s leading global position in offshore wind.

“The OWIH and OWiX are critical tools in drawing new disruptive technologies into the sector from the UK’s most innovative companies, and in bringing industry together to align behind the sector’s innovation priorities.”
