Energy Talks&Drinks Christmas Special – Unlocked opportunities for the Dutch manufacturing industry: floating wind
17 December 2020 @ 17:30 - 19:00Free
Because the Netherlands has access to relatively shallow water and has a favourable wind climate with good access to ports and the energy grid, renewable energy through offshore wind is obvious. But that is not the case everywhere. For areas that shore deep water, floating wind farms is the solution. Even though it seems that floating wind turbines do not directly contribute to the Dutch focus on sustainable and renewable energy, it is an enormous growth market thus opportunity for the Dutch manufacturing industry given the knowledge and expertise we have here.
In a series of two events, together with Maritime Delta we will look into the latest technology developments in floating systems and the future perspectives, with a deep dive into floating solar and wind. On November 5, we already addressed the research developments and applications in floating solar (the recording can be found here). During the Energy Talks&Drinks Christmas Special, on December 17 floating wind will be the center of the topic.
Floating wind farms, what do they look like? Who and what does it take to realize them?
