Business & policy

Where: Auditorium 1 - Level 4

Session description

Wind is set to be half of Europe’s electricity by 2050, with wind energy capacity rising from 220 GW today to up to 1,300 GW.
Do we have enough people working in the industry to deliver this?
Do we have the right skills?
How can we ensure we not only increase the number of people working in the wind industry but that we make it an inclusive and diverse sector to work in?

There is no conference pass required to attend this session.
Please stay with us for a drink after this session to continue the discussion with speakers. It will take place just outside the conference room, and will feature the launch of WindClusion and is supported by Orsted.
