In its Pathway to 2030 Holistic Network Design research, the National Grid claimed that it needed investment worth approximately £32 billion for offshore network infrastructure and £21.7 billion for the proposed onshore projects. The objective of the plan is to facilitate the distribution of energy produced from offshore wind farms to people across the UK.

According to the National Grid, the 2030 goal of the UK Government to have 50GW of offshore wind could be met by these infrastructure projects enabling the linkage of 18 offshore wind farms having a shared capacity of 23GW. From 2030, consumers could potentially save up approximately £5.5bn with this plan, as per National Grid.

Offshore wind developers would be provided with the requisite support under the plan, and the energy infrastructure would be created with an aim to reduce the negative impact on the local communities as well as the overall ecological setup.

Amid all this, UK investors can keep a tab on these wind energy stocks.
