There is a significant opportunity for the wider Scottish supply chain but geography counts for very little against a backdrop of rapid Levelised Cost of Energy (LCOE) reduction. Collaboration to establish “one common voice” for industry can help tackle common sector-wide challenges and barriers to entry. In partnership with OWIG, we have an opportunity to accelerate national competitiveness, improve skills and create employment and to stimulate innovation. Photo credit - Beatrice

Scotland is perfectly positioned to be a powerhouse of renewable energy.

Maximizing Business Opportunities for the Scottish Offshore Wind Supply Chain (SOWSC)

Survey link:

The Offshore Wind Industry Group (OWIG) was established in 2009 to ensure that Scotland fully capitalised on its offshore wind energy potential. The large-scale development of offshore wind represents the biggest opportunity for sustainable economic growth in Scotland for a generation. 

The Scottish Offshore Wind Supply Chain Forum (SOWSCF) is operating as a sub-group of OWIG and cannot be successful without your input. As part of our drive to shape a collective way forward, we need your support in helping to develop the SOWSCF, its priorities in the short-term and beyond, and contribute your views and knowledge.

To help us identify industry-wide challenges inhibiting Scottish supply chain growth, we want to engage with as many organisations as possible, in order that we can canvas opinion on particular challenges and identify priorities, actions and quick wins for 2018/19 and beyond.

We are keen that the Forum is Business driven/Business led and can work effectively with Government and Agencies. In doing so, it will enable us to clarify and develop concise and specific “asks”, where appropriate, to support the Scottish sector.

We would appreciate you sharing your knowledge and expertise through engaging with us via a high level questionnaire and also deeper face to face/telephone interviews.

“I’m greatly encouraged by the impressive turnout at yesterday’s OWIG Supply Chain Forum Workshop, I understand around 40 different companies from across the sector took part in the discussions. This Forum presents an ideal platform for the Scottish supply chain to interact and I hope we will see improved communication and collaboration between companies as a result – we can make a difference through this work.” Paul Wheelhouse MSP, Scottish Government Minister for Energy
