Freshly energised from COP26 on our doorstep, Scottish Renewables will bring together one of Scotland’s most exciting climate-friendly industries to review the state of our offshore wind ambitions. With the outcome of the ScotWind leasing round expected in advance of the conference, we’ll bring together experts from across industry, supply chain and stakeholders to analyse the results and inform the audience.
For our existing offshore projects, 2022 will also see the highly-anticipated result of the fourth CfD round, and there will be progress on new seabed leasing for innovation and oil and gas decarbonisation. Our programme will focus in particular on bringing together a diverse set of supply chain voices, and on exploring the big consenting challenges facing our growing offshore sector. Overall, this event aims to provide an energetic start to what will be a vital year for our offshore ambitions to 2030 and beyond.
- The latest news and views from Government and senior officials from stakeholders at the heart of offshore wind discussions
- How to access supply chain opportunities in practice and hear directly from experienced buyers
- How consenting and grid challenges are being addressed by industry and Government initiatives
- The latest on collaborative work going on to maximise opportunity for Scottish ports and manufacturing, deepening the energy transition and supporting green hydrogen ambitions
Scotland remains firmly on the map as an offshore wind leader with up to 10GW of new projects to be announced as a result of ScotWind leasing, on top of an existing 7GW pipeline of projects both consented and in development. Our sector has a world-leading role to play, particularly in establishing commercial-scale floating wind, and the opportunities for businesses of all scales and experience are vast. This conference will bring together senior industry figures to discuss how we can deliver successful offshore projects with maximum positive economic and environmental impact. From thought-leadership to practical supply chain advice, we’ll set the agenda for the year ahead.
Who should attend?
This conference will be essential for all those keen to play a role in offshore wind deployment in Scotland. From developers and Tier 1 suppliers to smaller businesses and innovators across the supply chain, this event is an opportunity to gain insights and intelligence from all parts of the sector. For all those working on the energy transition in the North Sea, and from fixed-bottom to floating foundations, our programme and networking opportunities will work for a diverse energy audience. And for those working on research, ecology and energy policy, we will draw together all these essential themes in our review of barriers to ambition.
