Webinar No.1

Thursday 30th of April - Contract for Difference Consultation - Proposed Changes
Presenter - Paul O'Brien, Cluster Manager

This webinar sets out the proposed changes under the current UK consultation of the Contract for Difference scheme due to close on the 22nd of May 2020. It lays out the case for the cluster to support these changes and raises the question about what the impact on the supply chain might be as if they are all adopted as proposed. The consultation also raises questions about the CfD Supply Chain Plans and these are also key questions that will impact the supply chain. The video includes the question and answer session which followed the presentation.

Scottish Offshore Wind Market Update

The scale of the offshore wind market in Scotland and the UK is an important factor in the development of an effective supply chain. The UK's overall Sector Deal target was raised to 40GW by 2030 in January 2020 by the UK Government. With only 8.5GW of offshore wind operational in the UK, that gives us a huge target to deliver in the next 10 years. In Scotland we have only delivered 1GW of the 7.6GW in our pipeline so again a tremendous opportunity for the DeepWind supply chain members yet to come.    

Below is the latest DeepWind update for members on the current Scottish market and pipeline projects along with a projection on future projects.
