Panel Discussion

Offshore wind is the fastest-growing renewable power segment and is widely known as a proven source of energy. Yet the journey to becoming commercially viable was faced with challenges including high operating costs, strict environmental standards and immature construction techniques. These challenges have played an important role and provided valuable lessons learned when implementing onshore wind projects. Today’s panel will discuss best practices developed during offshore wind’s journey to maturity that can be applied to the onshore wind sector.
