11:45 - 13:15 Hard talk with a united industry: will you deliver?


Room: Auditorium (A10, A11, A12)

Session description

Offshore wind is a vital part of the future European energy mix. The Event Ambassadors DONG, MHI Vestas and Siemens have pledged to support a United Industry that drives down costs. This session challenges one Event Ambassador as well as other representatives from the offshore wind energy supply chain. How will they deliver on the commitments made in the "joint declaration for a united industry"? How and when can offshore wind reach grid parity? What is needed from policymakers, and what are the societal and economic benefits?
