Happy New Year to you! It is now only two weeks before EERA DeepWind takes place in Trondheim. Make sure to be there to learn about the latest R&I within offshore wind energy.

Registration closes 6 January 2018


DeepWind'18: Can we make Offshore Wind profitable wihout subsidies?

Offshore wind is the fastest growing renewable sector today. Germany, Denmark and the UK is in front, installing new turbines every summer. But so far, this growth has been built on the back of governmental subsidies.
Now the game is changing, and the first bid for an offshore wind park without subsidies is a fact.
What development has made this efficiency possible and what future innovations lay in the pipeline for increased profitability?

At the opening session of EERA Deepwind'18 we will gather high-level leaders from the project developers, supply industry the R&D community to explore this very question.

EERA DeepWind'18 speakers include:
  • Alexandra Bech Gjørv, CEO, SINTEF
  • Jørn Scharling Holm, Technology Partnerships Manager, Ørsted
  • Aidan Cronin, Chair ETIPwind
  • Matthijs Soede, Research Programme Officer, European Commission
  • Hanne Wigum, Manager Renewable Technology, Statoil
  • Nils Røkke, Chair, European Energy Research Alliance (EERA).
  • Panel debate: the role of R&I to maximize the economic attractiveness of offshore
    wind. Moderator: Johan Hustad, Director of NTNU Energy
EERA DeepWind 2018 aims at presenting the best on-going R&D on deep sea offshore wind farms, both bottom fixed and floating. The conference is hosted by SINTEF and NTNU and organized in cooperation with the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) joint programme on wind energy.

The full detailed programme is now online.

The programme includes a mix of plenary presentations with broad appeal and presentations in parallel sessions and posters on specific science and technology themes.

Please distribute this invitation to colleagues as you see fit.
