With over 5GW of installed capacity, the UK has more offshore wind than any other country in the world. 2017 has been a landmark year for Scotland’s offshore wind sector. Beatrice – one of the largest private infrastructure projects ever developed in Scotland – is under construction, while the world’s first floating wind farm, Statoil’s Hywind, is now a reality off the coast of Peterhead. With the publication of the Clean Growth Strategy, in particular, the renewed support for offshore wind deployment and innovation as well as the commitment to work with the industry on a Sector Deal, 2018 looks set to be another year of exciting and intense activity.
