Today, collective floating projects represent less than 50MW; 2021 will see France issuing a 250MW tender; and by 2030, capacity is forecast to reach 12GW. Leading developers expound confident statements that the LCOE of floating projects will tumble rapidly. This internationally focused business event assembles developers, technology leaders, financiers, government agencies, and supply chain innovators to share insights on how floating will achieve commercial scale.

Six hundred offshore wind leaders will gather in London this November for an intimate event that specialises in learning and networking; The 10th Annual Offshore Wind Conference, co-located with the Floating Wind Conference and the International Tidal Energy will take place on the 11th-12th November, Canary Warf Hilton, London.

The two-day agenda provides leading insights for developers and supply chain companies looking to exploit the abundant opportunities presented as the floating offshore wind market moves towards commercial scale. We are not a trade show – we are an intimate networking event and guarantee 45% Developer/Operator attendance.
