Lindsay Leask, Senior Policy Manager at Scottish Renewables, said:

"Offshore wind holds huge opportunities for Scotland, and the industry is very clear that cost reductions are absolutely central to our long term success.

"It is fantastic to see the Scottish Government supporting the sector in this way, and collaborative initiatives like the Carbon Trust's Offshore Wind Accelerator are exactly the sort of programmes we need to really drive down those costs.

"Scotland is at the forefront of next generation offshore wind technologies and home to what is set to be the UK's first floating offshore wind farm. It's really exciting to see so much research and development activity taking place in Scottish waters."
