  • Floating wind provides great excitement with many GWs worth of offshore wind capacity able to be expanded into if able to be produced effectively at scale
  • The excitement was proved in the ScotWind auction with several GWs of seabed being bought up for future floating wind projects, including a project of 3GW
  • However, questions remain around the bankability of these projects as there are not yet any proven, long-term financially viable case studies to base decision-making from
  • Hear from project financers to understand what steps can be taken to make floating wind projects bankable and more attractive for project financers?
