Day 6: Offshore Wind
EnergyDays are English spoken!
The issue of 'Offshore Wind' will be presented.
Offshore wind is seen as one of the main renewable options in Europe. In the Dutch Energy Agreement of 2013, the goal for offshore wind has been set at 4500MW in 2023. However, reaching those targets is not straightforward. There are still several technological issues to be solved. Also, finding locations and financing projects prove to be major hurdles. The challenges the offshore wind sector is facing, will be discussed during this day.
