Regional cooperation on offshore grid development

High-level & Plenaries

When: Thursday, 28 November 2019, 9:00 - 10:15
Where: A15

Session description

One of the keys to unlocking offshore wind’s potential is the build-up of an offshore grid. This challenge offers an unprecedented opportunity for innovative approaches, as the offshore grid would be largely unbound by the legacies of onshore infrastructure, and could leverage the newest technologies. But implementing it will require a high degree of coordination across stakeholders and countries.

  • What are the ways forward in establishing the foundations for tomorrow's energy system?
