Presentation

Scotland continues to be a leading nation in renewable energy production. This was highlighted in June's CfD auction, with 1.85GW of offshore contracts every onshore wind contract, totalling 1.5GW, awarded to projects in Scotland. With near-perfect weather conditions and no intention of slowing down the number of projects under construction, the Scottish Government Minister for Business, Trade, Tourism and Enterprise, Ivan McKee, will showcase the future of wind power in Scotland.

Panel Discussion

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.
