This latest Green Alliance report looks beyond the current market difficulties and assesses the conditions necessary for successful cost reduction and growth over the next decade. The report entitled ‘UK Offshore wind in the 2020s’, argues that there are some important choices to be made in the next two years which will have a profound effect on the size and health of the sector in the 2020s because of the huge time lag between development and operation of major infrastructure projects. The authors collaborated with experts from inside and outside the industry to examine the major challenges. One of the main conclusions was costs need to come down but they can’t come down fast without incurring the cost of deployment at scale; innovation requires investment in learning at sea rather than in the lab.
