UK Energy Minister Kwasi Kwarteng has said floating wind will play a major role in the UK’s future energy mix. Speaking at an online conference and exhibition today, Floating Offshore Wind 2020, organised by trade associations RenewableUK and Scottish Renewables, the minister described it as “a hugely exciting opportunity and a dynamic area of growth which sits squarely and centrally in the Government’s goal to reach net zero emissions by 2050”. Kwarteng (pictured) emphasised that early deployment will create long term economic growth and industrial benefits, ensuring that supply chain benefits are captured in the UK. He added that there is no reason why the UK cannot not seize the opportunity of world leadership in the technology.
