Offshore Wind Expert Support Programme
Scottish Enterprise and Highlands and Islands Enterprise offer a range of services to help Scottish businesses take advantage of opportunities in offshore renewables. The Offshore Wind Expert Support Programme provides free advice and guidance on diversification activities that could help your company win future business in the offshore wind sector.
Support is delivered by specialist advisors who have knowledge and experience of the offshore wind sector. Advice could focus on:
- Market entry requirements
- Your company’s current capabilities (e.g. skills, processes) and its potential in relation to current offshore wind opportunities.
- Suitability of a specific product to the sector
- Market/supply chain positioning and contacts
The aim is to identify and explore appropriate profitable revenue streams for your business, including a review of the most appropriate and effective routes forward.
The Offshore Renewables Supply Chain Directory
The Offshore Renewables Supply Chain Directory contains details on hundreds of Scottish companies with offshore renewables sector capabilities.
It enables developers to search for specific capabilities and provides an excellent opportunity for supply chain companies to register and promote their company’s capability to supply this rapidly growing sector.
The supply chain database will be used by Scottish Enterprise and Highlands and Islands Enterprise to provide information to the offshore renewables industry on Scotland’s available skills and workforce.
