It is right that local communities benefit very significantly from island projects, so further focus in that area is also welcome. Finally, we have seen real national benefit through the use of project-specific supply chain plans in offshore wind, so their use in the lead up to CfD auctions for onshore projects makes absolute sense. With no changes proposed to the supply chain plan format, developers for all projects can start to develop their plans for the spring 2019.
