UK is the ‘go-to destination’ around the world for expertise on designing, building, and further developing wind, wave, and tidal energy projects, RenewableUK claims. The UK’s wind, wave, and tidal energy sector exports are worth £525m to the economy each year, with British-based companies now exporting their products and services to 37 countries across six continents, according to a new RenewableUK report released today. The trade body said 47 UK onshore wind, offshore wind, wave and tidal energy companies have signed a total of 465 contracts in the past year, covering hundreds of projects around the world in Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and North and South America. Almost 70 per cent of all contracts were in the offshore wind sector alone, which secured deals in 15 countries across five continents, the report states, with Germany the most popular export market followed by Taiwan, Denmark, the Netherlands, and the US.
