Project Description

Our report, ‘Building an Industry: Updated scenarios for industrial development‘,  pushed the timeframes and market geography for robust analysis out further than had been done before, helping to give all in the industry a rational basis for investment decisions.

We were chosen to deliver this study through a competitive tender process.

Our work deepened and extended the analysis of RenewableUK’s earlier report. We focused on providing detailed evidence on the potential scale of activity that could be generated by a strong UK and pan-European offshore wind market and the opportunities that this offers for UK economic activity. This involved preparing detailed scenarios of future activity up to 2030, analysis of the technical issues that will affect demand and timescales for the development of infrastructure.

The report also included a detailed supply-demand analysis of the turbine and foundation market.

All of this work underwent a detailed verification process through a series of workshops with companies from throughout the industry.

In addition, we provided a supplement solely looking at the supply-demand picture for UK ports which was not published due to sensitivities in the market at the time.
