Offshore Wind Infrastructure – White Paper

15th December 2020

The UK’s Net Zero commitments to Offshore Wind will make the Southern North Sea the global hub of wind energy production.

That’s why I am delighted to be continuing my leading role in the campaign calling for a proper strategic plan for connecting offshore wind power – alongside a number of Norfolk and Suffolk MPs.

Yesterday, the Government released its Energy White Paper, titled “Powering Our Net Zero Future” (see here) and Page 80 made for some very positive for all of us who have been working so hard on this over the past couple of years or so – including the many campaigners, landowners, businesses and residents involved from the East of England.

This White Paper clearly re-emphasises that we’re winning the argument and I am committed to working with colleagues to drive forward efforts to make sure that we get the right strategic plan in place for connecting this much needed, green offshore wind power.
