Empowering Local Communities
We intend to include genuine community involvement and ownership for the first time ever in an offshore wind development. We are currently working in partnership with community ownership experts Energy4All to investigate the options for Scottish communities to benefit from offshore wind.
Local supply chain opportunities
Register as a supplier
Scotland has the potential to develop a globally competitive supply chain for floating offshore wind which could see Scottish companies delivering projects right across the globe, much in the same way as the oil and gas supply chain has for decades.
*The equivalent number of homes is calculated by: Wind farm installed capacity (in MW) multiplied by the number of hours in one year (8,760) multiplied by the average load factor for offshore wind (being the average load factor for offshore wind over the last three years of data published within the Digest of United Kingdom Energy Statistics, BEIS, 2022), divided by the average annual household energy consumption (being the average annual household energy consumption over the last three years of data published within Energy Consumption in the UK 2022, BEIS, 2022).
