Charley-- what would you say has been the most surprising aspect to you about how Humber has transformed with the integration of offshore wind into it's 'ecosystem.' Has there been an unexpected side effect or reaction for the community that completely subverted your expectations?

Surprise.  I suppose that the potential has been realised so effectively - and built upon. Political aspirations have chimed with industry initiatives to make Humberside a role model.  The trailblazing ‘clustering’ trialled in Grimsby and Hull is now enshrined in the sector deal and the envy of coastal regions around the UK and beyond. A pleasant surprise of aspirations so magnificently delivered.

What an encouraging answer-- I hope other jurisidictions do indeed look at them for a roadmap to successful projects

Indeed. It's always good when the surprise is a pleasant one.
