Why to attend Future Offshore Wind?

“With our conference, we would like to bring offshore wind energy to Berlin and show what the future holds for offshore wind energy. We believe that the industry currently has many technological and economic success stories to tell: greatly reduced costs, floating wind farm foundations or innovative rotor blades. We have put together an exciting programme with international speakers, technical innovations and important political players, addressing an audience from politics, business and civil society.

We are pleased that the first ZUKUNFT OFFSHORE was so well received by the participants.

Uwe Knickrehm, Managing Director

“The latest results of offshore wind tenders in Germany have clearly demonstrated the innovative strength of our industry. New, more powerful systems, larger wind farm projects, better operating and maintenance concepts and more favourable financing conditions have led to a significant reduction in electricity generation costs. With our conference, we want to take a look at what the future could bring. In addition to providing insights into interesting projects in Germany, we will use international examples to open up new perspectives for the German economy.
