Date: May 22 – May 26
In one week you will meet important public- and private stakeholders in South China offshore energy industry. You will be introduced to government officials, developers & contractors, research institutes and other companies active in the offshore energy supply chain in Guangdong and Fujian province.

Why Guangdong and Fujian?
Offshore wind is becoming more and more economically attractive after the government cut the tariffs for onshore projects. A total of 832MW of new offshore capacity was installed in 2016. The renewed focus on offshore wind could see China exceed its target of 5GW of coastal projects ahead of the government’s 2020 deadline. Given the pace of development, the goal may be reached by the end of 2018. Guangdong and Fujian province will be the new hotspots for offshore wind. Many projects will be launched in the next years to come. The offshore wind mission could be an important stepping stone for Dutch companies that would like to be active in these provinces.

Tentative Program
The intention is to visit potential public and private partners for cooperation in the provinces of Guangdong and Fujian. The coming weeks the program will be finalized. The final program will be tuned as much as possible to the needs of the participants.

Besides company visit we will also visit the local governments in Guangdong and Fujian and we are planning to organize an offshore wind seminar or workshop.
