The Offshore Wind Innovation Hub is the UK’s primary coordinator for innovation, focusing on offshore wind energy cost reduction and maximising UK economic impact. Funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and delivered jointly by the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult and the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN), the Hub presents UK offshore wind innovation priorities, supply chain growth opportunities and a comprehensive view of the funding landscape.
The Offshore Wind Innovation Hub’s roadmaps are advanced prioritisation tools that identify the innovation needs of the offshore wind sector. They have been built in collaboration with industry and academia and identify the key challenges and priorities for offshore wind.
