Offshore Wind Growth Partnership seeking non-executive directors
12 May 2023
The Offshore Wind Growth Partnership (OGWP) is recruiting independent directors to join its Board from 1 July 2023. The new members will have an exciting mandate to take OWGP to its next phase of growth.
Offshore wind will be the backbone of a clean, reliable, affordable energy system in the UK. In 2022, British Energy Security Strategy set an ambition to deliver an almost four-fold increase in offshore wind generation capacity to 50 GW by 2030; the associated industry expenditure is estimated as £155 billion. Globally, 130 GW of new capacity is forecast to be added between 2023 and 2027 – an average year-on-year capacity growth rate of 25%.
The organisation is seeking non-executive directors to help shape the future of UK offshore wind supply chain support and the next phase of OGWP’s growth. Candidates with experience relevant to supply chain growth and a passion to improve UK’s competitiveness in the global offshore wind market are being sought for the available roles.
OWGP promotes collaboration within the industry and works closely with a large number of stakeholders such as industry, government (including devolved administrations), OWIC, SOWEC, DESNZ, DBT, TCE, CES, trade bodies and others, including local enterprise partnerships, offshore wind clusters and regional agencies.
