According to Duncan Clark, head of the U.K. region at Orsted, "current global events highlight more than ever the importance of landmark renewable energy projects like Hornsea 2 helping the UK increase the security and resilience of its energy supply and drive down costs for consumers by reducing dependence on expensive fossil fuels."

The offshore wind industry in the United Kingdom is established and is expected to grow in the upcoming years, with authorities aiming for up to 50 GW of capacity by 2030.
