We provided a senior team member for a offshore wind industrial strategy secondment for a government department.
We brought energy, sector knowledge, strong relationships and a desire to find win-win outcomes to a complex situation.
We had worked in many different ways with different government departments before being invited to submit a secondee. Due to the importance of establishing an impactful strategy, we were delighted to offer a senior member of staff, Mike Blanch, to assist.
Mike was seconded into the government department for a year to help develop the nation’s industrial strategy for offshore wind. He lead formal consultation with industry, exploring and formulating policy to support the local and wider supply chain, including ports, and facilitate further investment. He also provided economic modelling to underpin the strategy. He went on to propose and develop a summary document that has since been updated as government and industry have progressed.
