In his Ten Point Plan, the Prime Minister committed to even more ambitious targets for offshore wind, cementing it as one of the UK's primary sources of power in the future.

The energy networks have been central to connecting the 10.5GW of offshore wind we already have to the grid. With this due to quadruple in the next decade the networks are innovating. 

Beyond creating a smart, flexible grid that keeps the lights on even when the wind isn't blowing in the North Sea, network companies are exploring new avenues for making the most of the UK's huge offshore wind resource.
