The opportunities and challenges of floating offshore wind

Offshore wind power is one of the main renewable energy sources leading the way to net zero. The first offshore wind turbines in the UK were installed about 20 years ago, and the market has grown exponentially since then, with over 10GW of offshore wind now installed.

Reports & Thought Leadership

At the heart of the FOW CoE is the accumulation of knowledge and expertise in the field of floating wind and using this to support the growth in the sector. For this reason, we believe it is important to share with the wider industry some key insights gained via the delivery of our diverse project portfolio. Such insight can improve the transparency of developer requirements that assists supply chain in their understanding of the products and services in demand and can clarify key risks and opportunities across the sector. It is also a valuable resource for key public sector institutions, who determine the structure and mechanisms of which the industry follows.

We communicate this information primarily via our public reports on specific projects delivered and thought leadership articles of specific topics of focus.
