Business Transformation Programmes

The Offshore Wind Growth Partnership (OWGP) has launched a new Business Transformation opportunity, offering up to £700,000 of support to companies which will be delivered by OWGP in partnership with Expert Consultants and Strategic Partners. This funding, combined with existing live Business Transformation opportunities provides support of up to £2.2m.

Our developing suite of Business Transformation Programmes will support companies at different stages of their journey within the Offshore Wind Sector to realise increased impact, productivity and growth.

Our tiered support will enable us to reach companies of all different shapes, sizes and levels of maturity within the Offshore Wind Sector. This includes companies from other sectors who hope to transition into offshore wind.

The OWGP is seeking submissions to its latest opportunities:

Building new capacity in offshore wind by enabling UK businesses with existing capability in adjacent sectors to de-risk existing processes and diversify.
