Policies and regulations for offshore wind: to what extend can the industry rely on institutional support
The offshore wind industry, one of the main contributors to the UK renewable energy targets in the immediate future is an attractive business. The growth of the industry is rather impressive with more than 500 turbines installed since 2003. Despite this, governmental and institutional supports are still critical for the majority of the projects and all the businesses involved.
Clarity on a long-term policy outlook is vital for both supply chain and offshore wind projects which is why Wind Energy Update has invited Mr. Adrian Fox, supply chain manager, The Crown Estate and Mr. Balasz Mellar from The EU Parliament to their 2nd Annual Offshore Supply Chain Conference in London next February.
The speakers are going to provide last minute updates on policies and regulations from two of the most important institutions related to offshore wind. The presentations are not only meant to share unique data with the event’s attendee but also to allow them to prepare for the upcoming couple of years by taking advantage of all the available support.
On top of this, the conference is going to analyze the questions of how to win contracts in the offshore wind market by addressing cost, high volume and the increasing size of turbines.
The speaker faculty contains the cream of the developers working offshore today; RES Offshore, RWE Innogy and Vattenfall highlighted by an exclusive case study from Eneco. Pepijn Docter, senior contract manager, Eneco shares in-house cost benefit analysis criteria with the entire supply chain.
More than just presentations, this lead B2B event brings discussion to the table. Working groups will address the critical issues the audience identify to provide tangible solutions to the most pressing challenges faced today.
In 2011 over 100 senior figures gathered in London and feedback was outstanding "Excellent opportunity to grasp the issues affecting the industry" said Andrew Gregory, senior partner, Force 3 offshore.
Come February the conference is set to grow by 30% and attendees will leave this year able to understand selection criteria of procurement managers to secure critical, lucrative contracts, an absolute must with the ever changing financial landscape.
This is the event to meet procurement managers, project managers and investment and finance officers in 2012; for further information contact the event organizer Teodora Todorova.
