We work with industry by both responding to requests for support and by initiating programmes to tackle industry challenges and accelerate opportunities.
Our work with industry includes:

  • Collaborative innovation challenge programmes that draw upon our deep technical capabilities and leverage public and private sector funding. These programmes are particularly focused around cost reduction and removing barriers to progress
  • Accelerating the development of new ideas or technologies through our guided technology development programmes
  • Providing services relating to industrial testing and research
  • Working in partnership with the UK’s academic research base to fill knowledge gaps relating to key aspects of offshore renewables
  • Strategy and foresight to drive technology innovation in areas where there is clear industry demand.

Overall, these activities are designed to accelerate the time to market for new innovations, reduce the levelised cost of energy, de-risk offshore renewable energy deployment and drive economic growth.

To help us engage with industry at a strategic level, we have established the Industry Advisory Group (IAG).

The IAG will provide clear, consistent and representative industry advice to the ORE Catapult, helping to identify critical areas where innovative approaches and technological development can accelerate industry to deliver at a lower risk and cost.
