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.

Panel Discussion

A recent report by DNV GL predicts the floating wind market could grow from 100MW today to 250GW in 2050 and the market shows promise to reach locations not suited for traditional offshore wind and could potentially enable the green hydrogen market. 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.

  • Speaking of floating wind, how quickly can the market scale?
  • Advances in equipment and installation
  • Cost curve of equipment and capital
  • Locations ripe for development
  • Given all that, what’s the risk perception financiers have?
