This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government



This strategy sets out how government and industry will work together to promote innovation, investment and economic growth in the UK offshore wind sector. It covers:

  • providing market confidence
  • building a competitive supply chain
  • supporting innovation
  • finance
  • building a highly skilled workforce

The strategy was developed in partnership with the Offshore Wind Industry Council (OWIC), which brings together offshore wind developers, supply chain companies, government, The Crown Estate and the devolved administrations. The strategy takes account of existing evidence, as well as new evidence gathered through a call for views.

The offshore wind strategy is part of the government’s industrial strategy.
