2 An identification of the main customers
Working in collaboration with policy makers, industry large and small, utilities, owners of wind farms and the UK’s research organisations.

We bring together industry, the public sector, academia and other research institutions providing secondment opportunities both in and out of the business. We are also looking to drive cross industry collaboration and so we’re moving to working closely with other Catapults such as Satellite Applications to see how satellite technology can benefit offshore renewables.

3 The purpose and goals of the organisation
We are a technology innovation and knowledge centre established by Innovate UK, a central government body for the identification, development and rapid commercialisation of innovative technology to deliver affordable, offshore renewable energy.

We provide market access for Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and new technologies whilst driving greater efficiency to create sustainable offshore wind, wave and tidal industries delivering affordable, renewable energy.

By establishing Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult as a centre of deep technical expertise to lead innovation and research development we provide support services to others, such as SMEs, research bodies, industry and utilities. We are not-for-distributed-profit organisation and will collaborate widely with partners to de-risk and commercialise technological solutions and standards that can be embraced by the market.

Our mission is to build a centre of deep technical expertise that is internationally recognised for accelerating a vibrant offshore renewable energy sector, driven by technology innovation, collaboration and enhanced knowledge, and generating low carbon, affordable power and UK economic benefit.

4 An analysis of a minimum of 4 external factors and their impact on the business activities of an organisation
4.1 Political
The Renewable Energy sector is reliant on subsidies from the UK Government and European Union, if investment in our sector is reduced it can directly affect us as an organisation whose core funding is from the UK government. Westminster can decide to cap the spending and even the number of wind farms that can be built within the UK which could shift our core focus, if dramatically reduced, to marine and tidal energy. The European Union can also set legally binding carbon reduction targets which would influence not only the sector as a whole but our organisation.
