The Road to an Offshore Wind Strategy

Discover how wind power is leading the shift towards cleaner, sustainable energy sources and why it is the cornerstone of our future energy landscape. This programme will give you a complete overview of an offshore wind energy strategy by integrating the benefits of theoretical material, practical offshore wind cases with serious gaming and discussions, where actual examples will be contemplated.

This three day programme is a must for anyone who wants to gain a critical understanding of the developments in offshore wind energy while gaining a strong network of peers within the wind energy sector.

How you benefit

  • Explore key facets of offshore wind energy; from an introduction to the integration with hydrogen and from technology developments to decommissioning.
  • Includes two site visits in the Eemshaven – you’ll get a chance to see wind turbines from up close and learn more on how they are being transported.
  • Interact with other participants and work on building your own offshore wind park with our serious game: ‘Offshore Energy Game’
  • Acquire a network of peers and industry & academic experts within the wind energy sector.

On the first day of our three-day programme, the vital role of wind energy in the energy transition is explained. It starts with an introduction to wind energy and zooms in on the differences on the global offshore wind energy market. There is an overview of wind energy and the electric power system and the programme elaborates on hydrogen in the offshore wind energy sector. On day two, the programme dives into different subjects; the transport and logistics of offshore wind energy,
operations & maintenance, decommissioning and sustainable strategies for end-of-life management. It will also explore the latest technological advancements propelling the offshore wind sector forward. From innovative turbine designs to cutting-edge materials and grid integration solutions, we’ll uncover how technology is shaping the future of offshore wind energy and tackle the intricacies of system integration. On the third and final day, the programme will look more closely at the bigger picture behind the world of wind energy. It takes a look at the environmental impact of wind turbines on wildlife, what kind of regulations are there if you look at wind sector from an ecological standpoint. Participants will also learn more about
the tender process; from permit to production and everything in between. To conclude the day, we’ll put ourknowledge to the test and end with an interactive group session.
