Prime Minister’s landmark offshore wind speech will unlock huge opportunity for UK

Duncan Clark, Head of UK Region for Ørsted, today welcomed the Government's announcement on offshore wind.

Duncan Clark, Head of UK Region for Ørsted said:

“We welcome today’s announcement from the government which will underpin the delivery of at least 40GW of offshore wind by 2030 and unlock huge opportunities for world class UK supply chain companies, both domestically and overseas, to market the skills and innovative technologies that have been fostered in the UK offshore wind industry.

“Offshore wind is the most cost effective way to achieve the UK’s net zero ambitions and delivering 40 GW of offshore wind by 2030 is an essential part of this roadmap. This is a challenging target but achievable if Government and the industry continue to work together to accelerate deployment and build out the UK project pipeline as quickly as possible, regenerating coastal communities while expediting our progress to a more sustainable, low-carbon future.”
