Offshore wind after 2020 - Tenders as a way to reduce costs?
The conference agenda will address the question of how the role of offshore wind power in the energy supply in Germany and Europe will look under changed political conditions after 2020. Meet international leaders and representatives of the offshore wind industry, to discuss the future of the industry with regard to coming and existing tendering models.

Hamburg Offshore Wind differs from most other industry events in that it is put together and hosted by an organisation that has significant real life-cycle experience of offshore projects. The breadth and depth of technical understanding across the DNV GL Group and the membership network of the Renewable Energy Cluster Hamburg (REH), guarantee that the program has been designed to deliver added-value to offshore stakeholders and that the external and internal speakers have been specifically selected for their depth of expertise and understanding.
