Scots splash offshore cash
£1.5m funding for Carbon Trust's Offshore Wind Accelerator scheme
The Scottish Government has awarded £1.5m to the Carbon Trust for its Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA) programme.
The cash will be used to increase innovation, reduce costs and encourage further investment, Holyrood said.
It will focus on supporting OWA to explore further floating offshore wind and international collaboration in Scottish waters.
Energy minister Paul Wheelhouse (pictured) said: “Previous Scottish Government support for the OWA has helped develop new ideas in key areas of importance to companies operating in Scottish waters and I have no doubt this new funding will help firms to continue this important work.”
