Don’t miss our upcoming regional roadshow on the 2nd July at Swansea Arena.

RenewableUK Cymru are supporting The Offshore Wind Industry Council (OWIC) and The Crown Estate (TCE) to help Welsh companies scale up for offshore wind. Packed with strategic engagement opporunities, this is a chance to gain valuable insight into the recommendations of the Industrial Growth Plan (IGP) and funding opportunities to tap into.

ūüĒéLook forward to:

1ÔłŹ‚É£ Insight into the 5 key technology specific areas to build our manufacturing capability outlined in the IGP, and how Wales could capitalise on these to drive investment and growth.

2ÔłŹ‚É£An update on The Crown Estate Supply Chain Accelerator Fund to de-risk the early-stage development of projects linked to offshore wind. Hear more detail about the initial ¬£10 million of a ¬£50 million funding package now open for expressions of interest.

Future Energy Wales ‚Äď The Critical Role of Welsh Wind Power

RenewableUK Cymru report shows that wind power has the potential to generate 9GW of energy for Wales over the next decade, but only if an ambitious delivery plan with enabling actions is put in place now.

The Welsh Government has set a target for all electricity demand in Wales to be met from renewable sources by 2035.

Onshore wind projects are already contributing more than £6.5 million a year to Welsh Communities and could grow to £20 million, research from RenewableUK Cymru finds. 

A RenewableUK Cymru report, Onshore Wind in Wales: How our sector works with communities demonstrates how different regions in Wales stand to gain far more than just clean energy from the pipeline of onshore wind projects on the horizon.

‚ÄėOnshore Wind And Peatlands in Wales:¬†A Future for Healthy Peat and Clean Energy‚Äô

Wind farm developers could be important partners in providing a reliable and consistent additional funding source to help meet Wales’ peat restoration targets.

Wind farms are typically situated in remote, upland areas, often alongside degraded peatlands.  This report looks at the work renewable energy projects are already undertaking to restore these damaged landscapes and sets out the steps the Welsh Government and its statutory nature conservation advisors could take to unlock the opportunity further from onshore wind, hitting goals for both nature recovery and renewable energy.
