Opportunity North East welcomes the announcement of the successful bidders from the first ScotWind leasing round. This represents a significant milestone in Scotland’s energy transition journey and marks a crucial step to establish the North East of Scotland as a global leader in technology, innovation and energy transition.
Crown Estate Scotland’s decision to approve developments that will generate 24.8GW of offshore wind power, 70% of which are within 100 nautical miles from Aberdeen, is hugely encouraging. It creates significant opportunity for the region’s highly skilled supply chain and will secure investment to deliver sustainable, high-quality green jobs – the number one priority for the region’s energy economy.
North east Scotland continues to be critical for UK energy security and in leading energy transition. ETZ will play a pivotal role in establishing the North East of Scotland as a global leader in energy transition and a net exporter of products, services, technologies and skills.
