Winds of Change


Policy Connect is partnering with the High Value Manufacturing Catapult (HVMC) to bring together parliamentarians and industry for this seminar on the challenges that the UK wind industry faces to secure global markets. 

This event will be chaired by Wera Hobhouse MP and will feature members from across Carbon Connect and the All-Party Parliamentary Manufacturing Group. 

It will feature introductory remarks from parliamentarians and industry to set the scene for an active discussion on off-shore wind capability, circularity, and manufacturing, followed by wider networking opportunities.
