RenewableUK works to maximise the economic benefit and job creation potential of UK wind and marine energy supply chains, ensuring that industry, stakeholders and the government’s priorities are aligned to deliver maximum possible competitive UK content.
The challenges faced in securing cost efficient, reliable and sustainable supply chains differ according to the maturity of the energy technology and the size of the UK’s deployment ambition.
For large onshore wind, supporting and expanding the UK’s supply chain in areas such as civil engineering, electrical infrastructure, logistics and maintenance is the key. In small wind, growing our significant manufacturing base is a priority. Offshore wind presents a huge opportunity to grow a world class manufacturing and supply chain base that meets the challenges of a rapidly growing sector.
In wave and tidal energy it is vital to ensure that the UK builds on its research, development and leadership to secure a significant and long term supply chain base, as the sector moves towards commercialisation.
