Government funding for innovation in renewable energy.
Offshore Wind Innovation Hub
Building on the UK’s unique expertise in the offshore wind industry, BEIS is investing up to £1.3 million in a new offshore wind innovation hub, to be delivered by the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult and the Knowledge Transfer Network. The Hub will bring industry together to innovate and reduce the cost of energy from offshore wind.
The hub’s first programme will be the Offshore Wind Innovation Exchange. This cross-sector initiative will accelerate the cost reduction of energy from offshore wind by matching industry challenges with innovative solutions adopted from other parts of the economy, to provide new opportunities for UK businesses.
