The Offshore Wind Growth Partnership (OWGP) has issued its first two calls, offering up to £400,000 funding for projects that aim to improve the competitiveness of the existing UK supply chain, and encourage the development of new products and services for the sector.
Launched in June 2019, the OWGP is a key part of the Offshore Wind Sector Deal between industry and Government. Funded by the Offshore Wind Industry Council (OWIC) and delivered by the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult, it has a budget of £100m over a ten-year period and will promote closer collaboration across the supply chain and facilitate shared growth opportunities between developers and the supply chain.
The funding is available to all UK companies for submissions in two specific areas: cost reduction from advanced manufacturing techniques, and developing advanced sensors, Internet of Things (IoT) and communications solutions for offshore wind.
