One-third of United Kingdom electricity to be wind-generated by 2030

The cluster is able to deliver every element for building an offshore wind farm, from foundations, design, cables and cable laying to extensive port facilities, Ritchie said, adding that it is also home to a number of companies providing offshore wind O&M support.

The Global Wind Atlas, developed in partnership by ESMAP and Department of Wind Energy at the Technical University of Denmark and with 30km coverage offshore at 250m resolution, is a key resource that can help policymakers and investors identify potential high-wind areas for wind power generation virtually anywhere in the world.

The energy and clean growth minister, Claire Perry, said: "This new sector deal will drive a surge in the clean, green offshore wind revolution that is powering homes and businesses across the United Kingdom, bringing investment into coastal communities and ensuring we maintain our position as global leaders in this growing sector".

Natural Power is hailing the Offshore Wind Sector Deal agreed by the industry and the government as a major step forward which will generate significant economic benefits for the UK.

The report studies the market for Floating Offshore Wind Power across the globe taking the existing industry chain, the import and export statistics in Floating Offshore Wind Power market & dynamics of demand and supply of Floating Offshore Wind Power into consideration.

The UK government launched on Thursday a joint government-industry Offshore Wind Sector Deal, which is expected to significantly raise the share of renewable energy generation by 2030 and help it overtake fossil fuel-powered generation for the first time in UK history.

And there will be more efforts to reduce the cost of offshore wind projects, which have already seen costs halve in just two years, in the 2020s to help move to a subsidy-free system.

ScottishPower will confirm that as part of a £6bn investment plan it is actively pursuing future offshore wind projects in Scotland to ensure the targets are met.

Chris Claydon, chief executive of the ECITB, said: "The ECITB welcomes the Offshore Wind Sector Deal".

The program will convene developing country governments, commercial developers, development partners, and wind energy experts to raise awareness around offshore wind opportunities in emerging markets and lay the groundwork for a pipeline of new projects that could be supported by World Bank or IFC financing.

A spokesperson for the National Infrastructure Commission said: "Today's offshore wind sector deal is a clear demonstration of the numbers of jobs that this industry could create - especially as it continues to grow both here and internationally". This leaves Britain with a big energy gap in the future. "We also want to ensure far more diversity in the industry, by reaching a target of at least 33% women employees by 2030, and by recruiting people from a wider variety of ethnic backgrounds".
