THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
Taking place in the context of the latest Contracts for Difference auction allocations, the seminar discusses the role of offshore wind energy in the UK’s energy mix. Planned sessions will look at the prospects to expand and capitalise on the reduced costs, as well as how to promote future innovation in the sector.
Discussion is also expected on how the UK can develop the domestic sector in line with the targets set out in the Clean Growth Strategy and on government plans for a Sector Deal for the industry. Further discussion will take place on the potential to trade offshore wind electricity internationally.
Delegates will examine the challenges faced by the industry as wind farms are forced to move increasingly further out to sea, and the costs incurred in doing so. They will also consider the next steps for offshore development, and promoting innovation in the offshore wind sector.
