With an increased focus on building back better following COVID-19, and the spotlight on combatting climate change ahead of COP26, this year’s Global Offshore Wind, Year Zero: Building our energy future faster, will explore how the offshore wind industry must deliver projects at an unprecedented scale and speed to realise the 2050 vision to transform the future energy system and deliver a renewables-led future.

The two-day conference and exhibition will also address the building blocks of our future offshore wind industry and will examine whether cross pollination of industries and technologies can help deliver a net zero future.

Our speakers will share knowledge and experience from Ørsted’s 30 years’ experience developing offshore wind and adding value to global economies and communities where we operate, realising a green transformation to become world’s most sustainable energy company.

Global Offshore Wind seminars and panel sessions will also be available virtually for those who cannot attend the event in person.
