The UK government has set the target of meeting 60% of the offshore wind supply chain from within the UK by 2030. The Celtic Sea has previously been overlooked for fixed offshore wind development due to the seabed depths. However, floating offshore wind (FLOW) has reignited the opportunity for high-integrity, mission-critical renewable energy projects in the South West.
This report identifies the challenges and opportunities for FLOW in the Celtic Sea. It also outlines the role that the South West region can play in supporting the development of FLOW, overcoming challenges and maximising the potential benefits for the area.
