In a recent CFD auction, UK PM Boris Johnson announced that the UK was planning to sign contracts giving them access to twice the wind power capacity in 2021 that they had in 2019.

GreenTechMedia reports:

“The government will make a £160 million ($207 million) fund available to upgrade ports and other facilities as the country looks to encourage further supply-chain development. MHI Vestas makes blades in the south of England. Siemens Gamesa has a blade facility in Hull on the North Sea coast.”

The UK is already the world’s leading market for renewable energy, with plenty of windy coastline to draw from.

The government announced plans for a 1 GW floating wind target for 2030, as well as further investment into this technology.
