Floating Wind opportunities represent 80% of Europe's total potential offshore wind power capacity. Although the technology is still nascent, there have been some exciting developments this year with the first CfD contract being awarded to a Floating Wind project in June. And the Crown Estate's Offshore Wind Leasing Round 4 plan includes a 4GW allocation of floating wind in the Celtic Sea.

The panel will discuss the best way to roll out floating wind projects at scale, the risks that are involved with them, and the necessary additional port infrastructure required.

Panel Discussion

Any changes to governmental policy will cause wholesale changes to the structure of the industry overnight. Governments across Europe are reviewing their regulatory policies with Spain's proposal to the EU to decouple gas and energy prices. And the UK Government's Review of Electricity Market Agreements (REMA), set to be published in December, will potentially see an overhaul to policy that has not changed in the last 20 years.

The panel will discuss what these policy changes could mean for the industry and how best to prepare yourself to mitigate, and profit from, any changes that do come into place.
