The two organisations signed a memorandum of understanding on 3 October, outlining their plans to speed up deployment of offshore wind.

The initital focus will be on offshore wind measurement and gaining further knowledge of met-ocean conditions.

"This is a strong partnership, bringing together the Network’s local expertise with Carbon Trust’s strong track record of achieving cost reduction in offshore wind," said Jan Matthiesen, director of innovation at the Carbon Trust.

"We look forward to working with [Carbon Trust] to develop solutions for removing barriers, accelerate US commercial scale offshore wind development, and to directly undertake R&D projects aimed at lowering the costs of offshore wind in the US," said Liz Burdock, executive director of the Business Network for Offshore Wind.
