Renewable Infrastructure Development Group is an independent, Scottish offshore wind project development company. We bring a simpler, leaner and more flexible approach to project development, one that draws upon the strengths of both established and emerging suppliers to deliver projects which maximise the benefits to the local supply chain and the communities in which we operate.
We’re a Scottish developer. Our in-depth knowledge of Scotland’s unique environment and people help us deliver the most competitive projects in the most appropriate locations.
We work closely with all stakeholders throughout development – to ensure the long-term benefits of our projects are shared as widely as possible.
For the Scottish supply chain, we are already pioneering our innovative supply chain alignment model. This means we are already engaged with firms of all sizes country-wide, ensuring they have as much early information as possible to maximise their chances of success.
For communities, our goal is to ensure our projects deliver tangible long-term social and economic benefits for decades to come.
At RIDG we are working in partnership with the Green Investment Group to develop world-class offshore wind projects as part of the Crown Estate Scotland’s ScotWind leasing round.
To achieve this we have built a bespoke ScotWind team comprising more than 20 dedicated members, each one a recognised expert in their field. Together they bring a wealth of offshore experience in areas including health and safety, supply chain, risk, grid, Environmental Impact Assessment, resource assessment, offshore operations, community engagement, project finance, policy and communications.
Marc Smeed, Associate Director for Grid and Power offtake at RIDG, has been invited to support the UK Government’s review into offshore transmission networks through its Expert Panel.
The Scottish Government have today launched their Offshore Wind Policy Statement and Sectoral
Marine Plan for Offshore Wind Energy, setting an ambition for 11GW of capacity to be installed by 2030.
Ten of the world’s leading offshore energy organisations have joined the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult’s national Floating Offshore Wind Centre of Excellence (FOWCoE) to drive forward the development of next-generation offshore wind technologies.
