99 percent of Europe’s installed offshore wind capacity is in just 5 countries: the UK, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, and Denmark. This, however, is set to change. With the steady reduction in project development costs, the ability to reach new offshore environments with advancing technology, and the positive impact of offshore wind on the marine sector in coastal communities throughout Europe, more and more countries are seeking to get into the game.
Over the coming years France, Ireland, Poland, and many smaller European nations are hoping for their own offshore wind success stories. Expertise will be needed up and down the supply chain in order to achieve success, particularly when it comes to projects in more ambitious maritime environments.
While offshore wind in the established European markets may have already matured, in the emerging markets the industry is still at an early stage. Join this session to learn which areas of the supply chain still need to be developed, and where Atlantic Canada’s offshore industry might be able to offer its support.
