Innovation reigns supreme at Global Offshore Wind 2016

PES gets a taster of the RenewableUK’s Global Offshore Wind 2016, now in its 15th year. It is still the only dedicated offshore wind event in the UK. It takes place on June 21st and 22nd 2016, at the Manchester Central Convention Complex. Highlights of this year’s event include cost-saving innovations, export opportunities, international networking, supply-chain avenues and exclusive 1-2-1 meetings.

RenewableUK’s Director of Events Garth Halliday said: “As the UK’s leading renewables trade association, we are proud that Britain is the world leader in offshore wind. This is a technology which started in UK waters in the early 2000s and we now have more installed capacity than any other country. The future pipeline is also the largest in the world”.

Global Offshore Wind 2016 brings together many of the key players instrumental in the future growth of offshore wind energy around the world. Offshore wind is a relatively young industry, but its importance and future potential is clear. The UK currently has 5 gigawatts (GW) of installed capacity, which contributes over 5% of the country’s total electricity supply. By 2020, RenewableUK expects this to grow to 10 GW of capacity, which will double the current amount of electricity generated.
