Save the date: Enterprise Ireland Offshore Wind Forum – in partnership with Wind Energy Ireland
February 1 & 2, 2022, Dublin, Ireland.
Due to the current COVID-19 situation, Enterprise Ireland decided not to organize physical events in Q1 2022. A new date will be confirmed later on.
On the 1st and 2nd of February 2022, Enterprise Ireland, in partnership with Wind Energy Ireland, will host the Enterprise Ireland Offshore Wind Forum in Dublin. This in person event will convene the Irish offshore wind supply chain with industry stakeholders from across the Irish, UK and global offshore wind markets.
On day one, the primary focus will be on the UK market. We will take a close look at the UK’s industry ambition, investment and project pipelines, supply chain requirements and innovation priorities. We will also hear directly from developers, tier one contractors and stakeholders active in the UK market alongside input from Irish SMEs with relevant capability for the UK market. Discussions will centre around the UK’s 2030 40GW ambition, the role of innovation in the sector, the growing role of floating offshore wind as well as some of the key challenges facing the UK offshore wind industry.
For UK industry, this will be an excellent opportunity to meet with the Irish supply chain and to understand how Irish expertise and innovation can help you to deliver your projects effectively.
On day two, the focus will switch to the domestic Irish market. Attendees will receive updates on Ireland’s project timelines and locations. Developers of Irish Sea projects will provide updates on relevant projects and how Irish SMEs can become supply chain partners. Looking at the long term potential for offshore wind in Ireland, the event will also examine the progress on floating offshore wind and the complementary energy storage possibilities around green hydrogen. The critical role that Irish ports can play in the industry will also be examined. Irish SMEs will showcase their innovative capabilities through a series of elevator pitches throughout the two day event.
Please note that a detailed agenda and registration links will be shared in early December.
