Reuters Events

Offshore & Floating Wind Powering the Energy Transition

With global pressure to reduce emissions and take a step away from fossil fuels, the hero of the day could be offshore wind. With ambitious targets for offshore wind set by the European Commission – to hit 300 GW capacity by the middle of the century – it will require both the well established fixed bottom wind and up-and-coming floating wind sectors to come together and hone in on what’s needed to meet this goal: rapid expansion. Is the industry ready?

Returning for another exciting iteration, Reuters Events: Offshore & Floating Wind Europe (October 13-14, 2021) is back and set to provide a complete update of where the industry is headed, and how it can meet this target. Over 2 days, attendees will leave with not only a strategic outlook of markets, upcoming tenders, contracts and project updates, but also a sense of what is truly possible for the future of this industry that’s garnering increasing global attention (and investment!).
