Why to attend Future Offshore Wind?

“With our conference, we brought the topic of offshore wind energy into political Berlin and showed what the future holds for offshore wind energy.
We were able to show that the industry currently has many technological and economic success stories to tell: greatly reduced costs, floating wind farm foundations or innovative turbines in the 12-15 MW class for the next few years.
We had put together an interesting programme with international speakers, technical innovations and important political actors and thus appealed equally to interested participants from politics and business”.

Uwe Knickrehm, Managing Director

„Germany has coined the term energy system transformation worldwide and has also been a leader in offshore wind energy for many years. In the meantime, many other countries such as the Netherlands, France and Great Britain are catching up and developing holistic concepts in which offshore wind plays an important role. In addition to the development options, it is interesting to compare the different regulatory frameworks and learn from each other if necessary. In Germany, for example, this year politicians must find an answer to the question of how much offshore wind is desired in Germany in the future and what a comprehensive solution for decarbonizing all sectors could look like. We therefore have enough interesting topics and current questions for the second FUTURE OFFSHORE.”
