Study reveals long-term UK floating wind potential – 17,000 jobs and £33.6bn by 2050
The Crown Estate Scotland-commissioned study sets out the potential benefits to the UK economy of floating wind development
Crown Estate Scotland manages assets that stretch the length and breadth of Scotland, including agricultural and forestry land, most of the seabed, just under half of the foreshore and some commercial property.
Through working with others, we aim to innovate with land and property to create prosperity for Scotland and its communities. We do this by helping ensure families, businesses and communities can live, work and thrive on the assets.
All our revenue profit goes to Scottish Government. Our 2017-20 corporate plan and 2018-19 business plan details our priorities and objectives, and our Framework Document sets out our functions, duties and powers.
Our Local Pilots Scheme encourages local authorities, development trusts and other bodies to manage Scottish Crown Estate land and property in their local area.
