|11:30||13:30||Recharge||Floating Wind Power Debate
Floating wind power is on the rise. Seen as an experimental concept only five years ago, the prototypes now turning off Norway, Portugal an Japan are proving the merits of the technology — and pointing the way towards cost reductions that would carry floaters into the mainstream with an LCoE of under £100 ($158) per MWh within the next decade. Recharge, the official publication of EWEA 2015, is bringing together a panel of the leading thinkers on floating wind power to discuss the lessons of the pilot projects, plans for the first floating arrays, and how the sector is overcoming barriers to commercialisation.
