Offshore wind farm developers will forfeit their subsidy contracts if they fail to meet plans to support the British supply chain, under government proposals.
The business department is looking for ways to boost the share of offshore wind projects that are made in the UK. The Times revealed on Monday that the government estimates that less than half of the £50 billion capital investment in new wind farms this decade will be spent in Britain, with most turbine parts likely to be made overseas.
Under proposals published yesterday, offshore wind developers will have to set out more specific commitments in their supply chain plans which are a prerequisite to be eligible to compete for consumer funded subsidy contracts.
