Floating Wind Europe Conference

March 23-24, 2022- Amsterdam, Netherlands

Floating offshore wind technology is an emerging option for generating power in deeper water further offshore than wind turbines fixed on the seafloor. While there are relatively few large-scale floating wind farms in operation, experts hope floating turbines could greatly expand the scope of offshore wind, generating power more efficiently where winds are stronger, and where turbines are less visible from land.

The 2nd Annual Floating Wind Europe is gearing up to provide attendees with seminal insights for successful operations within a digitally shifted green energy landscape. The forum will bring together leaders within the Wind and Offshore industries enabling accelerated adoption of floating wind technology globally and will offer the ideal space for networking with industry players; senior managers, decision-makers, and practitioners operating in the industries and making the most of floating wind technologies.

Join us as we gather these experts, practitioners, stakeholders, and leaders from Europe and the rest of the world to discuss the how to achieve cost reduction, explore opportunities for the supply chain, examine the role of innovations and advancement in infrastructure.  In addition, various aspects of floating wind will be presented and discussed in several sessions: From market developments to financing possibilities, technical challenges and, policies & legislative actions as well as best practices.

Floating offshore wind energy is an emerging technology that provides access to new wind generation sites allowing for a diversified wind supply in future low carbon electricity systems. The technology allows power generators to tap into areas with much higher wind speeds since it can be deployed in deep waters far away from the coast where winds are stronger.

As the floating wind technology continues to develop, the industry is beginning to follow. While one could say that Europe is expected to be the key growth driver within the next 5-10 years, Asia is quickly recognising the potential of floating wind power. With ambitions of becoming an exporter of floating wind technology and services, the Asian governments are looking into leveraging the advantages of renewable floating offshore wind to address the climate crisis and at the same time meet their contribution to reaching the world’s carbon reduction goals. Since Asia is surrounded by deep oceans, countries in this area are potentially big markets for floating wind turbine deployment.

Floating offshore wind is up on the ladder to become commercially competitive with other forms of electricity generation sources and a dependable source of power. The challenge for the industry is to reduce costs to move from expensive demonstrators to a commercially viable commercial model. Further, economies of scale will be necessary to drive the costs down. Floating foundations have already been proven in harsh operating environments; a number of models have been built and used to project the cost parity that floating wind can achieve with fixed-bottom. The technology is opening new possibilities for wind power locations and will play a critical role in the transition to a cleaner energy supply, contributing significantly to an increase in offshore wind power.

Join us as we gather these experts, practitioners, stakeholders, and leaders from Europe and the rest of the world to discuss the how to achieve cost reduction, explore opportunities for the supply chain, examine the role of innovations and advancement in infrastructure.  In addition, various aspects of floating wind will be presented and discussed in several sessions: From market developments to financing possibilities, technical challenges and, policies & legislative actions as well as best practices.
