Apart from offshore wind, other sources of renewable energy can be generated offshore. According to the Blue Growth strategy of the European Commission, estimates show that ocean energy, such as wave and tidal energy, could meet up to 10% of the EU’s electricity demand by 2050. In order to generate both wind- and ocean energy in a cost efficient manner, innovation in ship concepts, design and operations are key.
During this Europort Masterclass frontrunners in the field of offshore renewables present their newest solutions and share their vision on the future of offshore energy. What are the business opportunities for companies operating in the traditional oil and gas market today? And what technical innovations will reduce costs and increase efficiency?
