She added: "The UK has been very successful in delivering offshore wind and with this sector plan we must ensure that we are able to maximise the power produced by new offshore wind farms. It means the Government's latest offshore wind target of 30 gigawatts by 2030 is woefully inadequate".
A third of Britain's electricity will be produced by offshore wind power by 2030, according to a release issued on Thursday by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.

Leading offshore wind figures expect the joint government-industry blueprint will create a jobs boom in coastal communities and economically deprived regions around the UK.
Scottish Energy Minister Paul Wheelhouse said: "Offshore wind has a key role to play in achieving our ambitious energy targets and delivering a low-carbon energy system".
"Whilst there's no doubt the offshore oil & gas industry witnessed significant redundancies over the past few years, the introduction of greater offshore engineering opportunities, not just through renewables but also through the general "blue economy", will mean that the engineering professional of the future will be more likely to develop transferable skills that can adapted to nearly any offshore engineering project", he added. Alongside the deal, the government will provide more than £4m for British businesses to share expertise globally and open new markets through a programme to help countries such as Indonesia and Pakistan avoid coal power and develop their own offshore wind projects.
The British government sees offshore wind as a genuine opportunity to lead. This would require over 40 billion pounds worth of infrastructure investment across the UK.
According to Anderson the pact will attract even more businesses in the United Kingdom to join the offshore wind supply chain.
Executive director John Sauven said: "The Government's plans for a fleet of new nuclear reactors has collapsed".
The UK is already the world leader in offshore wind, with more capacity than any other country, the biggest offshore wind farms and the most powerful turbines.
This is the first Sector Deal for a renewable energy technology.
'Wind and solar must be tripled between now and 2030, with offshore wind the future backbone of the UK's energy system'.
