For many countries, deploying offshore wind will play a critical role in delivering on Net Zero targets, supporting green growth and providing energy security. Policymakers should consider local context to set markets up for success, but best practice in any market requires attention to six key areas:

  • Market scale and visibility
  • Site development
  • Grid connection
  • Incentives
  • Supply chain development
  • Innovation support

This report distils learnings from the Carbon Trust’s world-leading expertise gained in well over a decade of working at the forefront of the global offshore wind industry. 

This is the first in a series of reports aiming to help policymakers design effective offshore wind markets. All reports will be available on the Carbon Trust website.
