The Scottish Government has announced that it has invested a further GBP 1.5 million in the Carbon Trust’s collaborative research, development and demonstration (RD&D) programme – the Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA).

The OWA brings new technologies to market faster and the innovations supported through the OWA will ultimately help to reduce the cost of offshore wind and ensure the full potential of offshore wind energy is realised. The programme brings together nine of the largest offshore wind developers in Europe; DONG Energy, EnBW, E.ON, Iberdrola, innogy, SSE, Statkraft, Statoil and Vattenfall. Due to the continued support from the Scottish Government the Carbon Trust can continue to fund projects in the three following areas:

  • Continuing to explore the opportunity that offshore wind offers to Scotland
  • Encouraging international collaboration on offshore wind developers’ most pressing problems, specifically addressing how developers working in Scottish waters can make offshore wind more efficient
  • Sharing knowledge on innovation and cost reduction between partners
