Success in fixed offshore wind shows what our industry is capable of. As we accelerate global efforts to decarbonise our power system, more and more countries are looking to their marine resource as a power source. In leading markets like the UK and the rest of Europe, floating offshore wind offers the chance to scale up our ambition and bring in new sites for development, and in newer markets around the globe development in shallow waters is not possible meaning floating offshore wind needs to be ready to move as these markets open up.
This all points to the rapid acceleration of our floating offshore wind sector. In this session, our industry experts will give an update on floating offshore wind both here and around the globe, showcasing efforts to bring down the cost, standardise our delivery model, and grow out stable markets that support these longer-term ambitions to go deeper.
