Offshore Wind Innovation Exchange (OWiX): Call for ideas

Posted on 15/06/2017

Calling innovators from all UK industries, help drive cost reduction in the offshore wind sector. Critical challenges have been identified.

OWiX is a cross-sector pilot scheme that aims to accelerate the cost reduction of offshore wind by matching industry challenges with innovative solutions adapted from other parts of the economy. At the same time, it will provide targeted opportunities for UK businesses in different industries to deliver into the renewable energy supply chain.

If you are an innovative SME or organisation with great new technologies or innovations, this call for ideas is an opportunity to become directly linked to, or collaborate with, global players (operators and OEMs) in this rapidly growing sector. Offshore wind is actively seeking new and disruptive technologies from a myriad of sources to help it achieve its full potential.

The OWiX programme team has worked with key industry stakeholders (operators and OEMs) to develop specific innovation challenges through a series of ‘guided innovation’ workshops. The challenges predominantly focus on near-term issues that could make a substantial difference to the cost of energy of operating wind farms and newly constructed Round 2 and 3 developments.
