Global Floating Offshore Wind (FLOW) will play a significant part in the global fight against climate change, however industrialisation and scale up needs to be accelerated in order to meet global net zero targets. Sitting at the heart of the European Offshore Renewable Energy resource areas, including the UK’s world leading offshore wind market, Cornwall is playing a leading role with colleagues across the UK and beyond in driving this acceleration.
Supergen ORE Hub Director, Professor Deborah Greaves OBE (University of Plymouth) delivered a session for the FLOW conference entitled, "Research and Innovation for industrialisation – a regional response." You can view this presentation below.
The conference featured a series of presentations and discussions focusing on:
- How Floating Offshore Wind (FLOW) meets the scale required to make significant change to global energy production and the resulting size of opportunity
- How the Celtic Sea region can be developed to accelerate the industrialisation of FLOW to meet this global opportunity
- The impact and opportunities of early thinking around low carbon footprint and local content strategies
- How a joined-up regional response to this global opportunity can maximise investment and deliver return
