Thought leaders to meet at EWEA OFFSHORE 2013 in Frankfurt


Networking in 2012

At the upcoming EWEA OFFSHORE event which starts on 19th November and lasts till 21st, political and industry leaders will debate 2030 targets, leading manufacturers will discuss how to lever the best state-of-the-art technology and industry experts will go into detail on financing offshore wind and taking turbines into deeper waters.

It will welcome the high level Thought Leaders Club, which includes David Clarke chief executive of ETI, Julian Brown chairman at Nortec and Areva Wind and Adam Bruce, global head of Mainstream Renewable Power and who is also chairman of the UK industry/government body of the Offshore Wind Programme Board. The Thought Leaders Club is an initiative which brings together leading thinkers and participants in the renewable energy industry to contribute towards finding solutions.

They will enjoy high level debate which will look at the roll out of key new technologies and infrastructure such as the giant offshore platforms using HVDC technology, and look at whether supply chain bottlenecks are close to being resolved, following the serious hiatus which the sector suffered last year.

It will examine whether new regulations have resolved key questions of liability over grid delays and assess the size of the sector’s construction pipeline in the mid-term. They will also examine
how the changing political panorama post elections is affecting the sector.
