Question for Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

UIN 272289, tabled on 2 July 2019

The Offshore Wind Sector Deal foresees up to 30GW of installed offshore wind capacity by 2030, provided costs continue to fall. This level of certainty, unmatched by any other major European market, sets a firm foundation for offshore wind to play its role in reaching net zero emissions by 2050.
