Our reaction to Offshore Wind Sector Deal

Tom Thackray, CBI Energy and Infrastructure Director, said:

“The UK is a world leader in clean growth initiatives and technology. The Offshore Wind Sector Deal – a key part of the Government’s Industrial Strategy – reflects the importance of offshore wind as part of the country’s low-carbon power supply, and is great news for the sector’s future.

“We welcome the Government’s commitment to provide over £4 million to support British businesses share their expertise globally, and benefit from new markets.

“The Government must redouble its efforts to implement all parts of the Industrial Strategy, in order to boost productivity and prosperity across the UK for the long run. This includes more joined-up thinking and better co-ordination between government departments.”
