Future Trends and Innovations in Offshore Wind
09 December 2021
Venue: Webinar (09:00 - 11:00)
This webinar is delivered by Department for International Trade in collaboration with Scottish Development International.
The UK has a very enviable record in the installation and operation of offshore wind farms. The UK has been driving this market for many years now. And it is fair to say in the early stages the cost of offshore wind was incredibly high. The growth in offshore wind has been enabled by the extraordinary cost reduction that the industry has delivered in recent years, largely driven by advances in technology.
To deliver a low-carbon future and meet the UK’s net-zero target by 2050 will require at least 75GW of installed offshore wind capacity – that’s 10 times what we have installed today. The UK is going to need innovative solutions and approaches to challenges, such as the integration of renewable energy into the grid. During this webinar, we will be discussing different aspects of innovation in offshore wind, not only in technology but also innovative solutions in installation techniques and environmental surveys.
