The rise of Offshore and Floating wind technology
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM
An IRENA projection estimates that global growth in offshore wind could reach a cumulative investment of $1.47 trillion by 2050. Additionally, under favorable market and regulatory conditions, the United States itself is estimated to reach a production capacity of over 20 GigaWatts by 2030.
This panel focuses on the advancement of offshore and floating wind technology in order to analyze the different solutions and potential challenges they bring to the existing renewable market. The panel discusses the technical resources and barriers associated with resource mapping, forecasting, and grid integration.
It also discusses wind market transition into offshore and eventually offshore floating wind farms.
