New task force to boost skills in UK's offshore wind sector

A new task force, which will help to increase the number of skilled people working in the UK’s world-leading offshore wind industry, has been set up and held its first meeting recently.

The Investment in Talent Group, which has been set up by the Offshore Wind Industry Council (OWIC)aims to ensure that the industry attracts a wide, diverse pool of talent as the number of jobs in offshore wind trebles to 27,000 by 2030.

The launch of the new group is one of a series of initiatives being undertaken by industry and Government as part of the landmark Offshore Wind Sector Deal announced in March. The deal sets out a series of commitments to ensure that offshore wind will be generating at least one-third of the UK's electricity by 2030, making it the backbone of our future clean energy system, bringing significant economic benefits for the whole country.
