Initially shaped by the key pillars under the UK Industrial Strategy (Ideas, People, Infrastructure, Business Environment, Places), OWIC established several key strategic workstreams to help address some of these key challenges in large scale deployment of offshore wind, whilst also looking to identify opportunities for synergies and collaboration with other parties and sectors.

Each workstream drives key deliverables under the Sector Deal, overseen by the Industry Board, and supported by the OWIC Delivery team at RenewableUK

The workstreams listed below illustrate the effort and progress the sector is making in all parts of the industry – from supply chain growth and jobs, to consenting challenges around grid connection, aviation, and environmental factors, to innovation, the transition from traditional energy industries and understanding how wind operates as a key part of the wider UK power system.
