Scottish government announces offshore wind summit with Energy Minister

The Scottish Government and the UK Government are to host an offshore wind summit on 2 May to look at maximising the offshore wind farm sector.

In the 11 April announcement, the Scottish Government said Scottish Finance Secretary Derek Mackay will co-host the summit with UK Energy and Clean Growth Minister Claire Perry.

Mackay said: “We are committed to maximising the sector in Scotland, but we cannot do it alone – we need the whole industry to work together. This summit will allow us to talk directly with the key developers and suppliers to establish what more we can do to help. The Scottish government will be examining the consent process to ensure we use the powers at our disposal to keep work on these shores.”

Invitees include offshore wind developers such as EDF Renewables, E.ON, Innogy and trade unions, along with other industry representatives.
