UK offshore wind:

in numbers

 With the government's target of 40 gigawatts (GW) of generation capacity by 2030 and its aim to use wind power to produce enough electricity to power every UK home, the UK offshore wind industry is full of opportunities.

Its success is proof that the offshore wind sector can help grow the economy and provide new jobs whilst working towards net zero.
