Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult Innovation Support

UK’s leading technology innovation and research centre for offshore renewable energy

Our mission is to accelerate the creation and growth of UK companies in the offshore renewable energy sector, using our unique facilities and research and engineering capabilities to bring together industry and academia to drive innovation and commercialisation in renewable energy. We do this by establishing global leadership, attracting investment, and supporting growth, productivity and job creation. The growth in offshore wind, in particular, has been enabled by the extraordinary cost reduction that the industry has delivered in recent years, largely driven by the speed of technology innovation.

To deliver a low-carbon future and meet the UK’s net-zero target by 2050 will require at least 75GW of installed offshore wind capacity – that’s 10 times what we have installed today. The UK is going to need new innovative solutions and approaches to challenges, such as integrating renewable energy into the grid, in order to deliver that volume of production.


The Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult accelerates UK's offshore renewable energy industry by driving innovation, reducing costs, and creating growth opportunities. They provide expertise, facilities, and support for technology development and commercialisation in the sector.
