Gabriel Davies is the Programme Director for Floating Wind at Ørsted, leading the strategic, commercial and technical delivery of floating wind across the offshore business. She previously held a series of leadership roles in Asset Management and prior to joining Ørsted, was a practicing Energy Projects lawyer.
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.
