The time has come to take the necessary steps to guarantee your success in the future of offshore wind.

With some developers exploring how to bid at zero subsidy, turbine manufacturers unveiling turbines at 10MW+ in scale, a looming bottleneck in dealing with legacy project O&M as projects scale up and floating offshore wind moving quickly towards commercialisation, the offshore wind industry is at a crucial tipping point in time. What direction we go in, from here, can be determined by you.

Which is why Offshore Wind Europe brought together 350+ leaders from across the core pillars of the offshore value chain, who each have the responsibility and power to transform their business – to give you the tools to make true change.

Offshore Wind Europe armed the 2018 delegates with the tools to:

  • Transition from CFDs to PPAs and bid at Zero Subsidy

  • Plan and develop with next generation 10MW+ turbines 

  • Flourish in global markets - from a development and supply chain perspective

  • Perfect your O&M and asset performance 

  • Accomplish commercial scale floating offshore wind projects
