Offshore wind energy is widely seen as a secure, reliable energy source that can provide answers to today’s climate change and energy security threats. This week the strength of the industry will be evident in Amsterdam as delegates begin to gather for the world’s largest offshore wind energy conference and exhibition.
Packed with informative sessions on topics ranging from the cutting-edge turbine technology of the future to the nitty-gritty of offshore electricity grid planning, the conference will cover all the issues the offshore sector faces today.
The conference opens tomorrow with a panel debate on whether the European offshore wind power industry will repeat the success of onshore wind power, focusing on what political and financial support the sector needs to fulfill its potential.
