Europort Masterclass ‘Maritime solutions for offshore renewable energy’

Date:                      Wednesday 6 November
Time:                      10:00 – 13:30 (incl. network lunch)
Category:            Offshore specials

Introduction

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.

Why should I attend?

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?

During the network lunch you will have the opportunity to interact with the speakers and other attendees.

Who should attend?

Representatives of offshore shipping companies, contractors, operators, offshore installation companies, shipyards, naval architects and suppliers.

Such as strategy managers, project managers, business developers, R&D specialists, researchers, engineers, naval architects, maritime suppliers, class societies and policy advisors of regulatory bodies.
