The Offshore Wind Expert Mission travelled to China in October 2018.

Innovate UK’s Global Missions Programme is one of its most important tools to support the UK’s Industrial Strategy’s ambition for the UK to be the international partner of choice for science and innovation. Global collaborations are crucial in meeting the Industrial Strategy’s Grand Challenges and will be further supported by the launch of a new International Research and Innovation Strategy. The Global Expert Missions, led by the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN), play an important role in building strategic partnerships, providing deep insight into the opportunities for UK innovation and shaping future programmes.


This report provides an overview of the findings from the Innovate UK Global Expert Mission to China on offshore wind (OSW). During the mission, a delegation consisting of government representatives and industry experts travelled to Yangjiang, Guangzhou and Beijing to meet key stakeholders from the Chinese OSW market. There is potential for over 15 GW of turbines to be in the water by 2025. This means China has the potential to be the world’s largest offshore market by 2025.
