The Floating Offshore Wind Demonstration Programme is a new funding call which has been announced by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS). It reflects the UK Government’s target for floating offshore wind to deliver 1GW of energy by 2030.
BEIS is making up to £17.5 million of funding available for this programme. The aim is to deliver multiple demonstration projects, which will take place until end of March 2024, and will cover a range of FLOW technology challenges. The demonstration projects will focus on mid-technology readiness level (TRL) technologies that are ready to be proved. The programme will target 4 challenge areas:
- Dynamic cables
- Miscellaneous - areas that meet the programme scope and objectives but are not covered by 1-3. Innovation area driven by industry.
