The Offshore Wind Innovation Hub (OWIH) has launched its new website which includes an evidence-based identification of UK offshore wind innovation priorities, supply chain growth opportunities and a view of the funding landscape.

The Hub, and its first programme the Offshore Wind Innovation Exchange (OWIX), is backed by the UK’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and delivered jointly by the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult and Innovate UK’s Knowledge Transfer Network.

The Hub’s website will act as the focal point for the UK offshore wind industry and the public sector – providing government and industry with evidence-based and validated information on the key innovation priorities within the sector and impact these can have.

It will also provide information on the national and international funding programmes available for technology development and will build consortia of organisations who can collectively address the innovation priorities identified.

“The OWIH has an important role to play in helping the UK’s technology-based businesses seize the tremendous opportunities in the offshore wind market,” Dr Stephen Wyatt, Research & Disruptive Innovation Director at ORE Catapult, said.

”It will ensure that the UK’s world-class technologies and services remain at the forefront of innovation and are promoted internationally, further growing the UK’s leading global position in offshore wind. The OWIH and OWiX are critical tools in drawing new disruptive technologies into the sector from the UK’s most innovative companies, and in bringing industry together to align behind the sector’s innovation priorities.”
