The UK is the world leader in offshore wind, with more current capacity installed than any other country. Offshore wind powers over 7.5 million UK homes a year and is set to become the backbone of a clean, reliable and affordable energy system. By 2030, the UK will be getting about a third of its electricity from offshore wind.
The Department for International Trade (DIT) is pleased to invite energy sector and wider business community representatives from Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, to a virtual event on the latest developments in the UK’s offshore wind industry, technological trends, challenges and achievements in developing a leading offshore wind industry.
You will hear the introductory remarks from energy sector representatives from Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia followed by the UK guest speakers who will cover a range of topics, including technological choices for transmission grids and resulting impact of offshore wind industry to the environment. The event will finish with panel discussions and Q&A.
