Delays in offshore wind projects cause target failure: The UK could fall behind, if delays to offshore wind projects continue affecting its offshore energy targets and emissions .

This is according to GlobalData the analytics firm , which warns delays in project approvals could stretch timelines and hinder growth in achieving energy goals.

Power Analyst at GlobalData, Somik Das said: “Further delays in approvals could lead developers to doubt the UK’s commitment to the offshore wind sector. This could also make it difficult for the UK to achieve its emission target – ‘UK 2050 net zero target’.

“Large offshore wind projects are essential to generate clean power on a scale that would likely help the nation decarbonise the economy and make significant advancements in the path of net-zero emissions.”

Project delays could also prevent the UK from achieving the target of 40GW of offshore capacity by 2030 expects GlobalData.
