Panel Discussion

Green hydrogen will be the missing piece of the decarbonisation puzzle when it comes to renewable energy and floating wind represents the next stage of the wind industry's growth. Combined, these two energy sources could enable net zero ambitions and this panel will explore a UK-based project in development from different perspectives in the value chain.
