EUSEW Online Side Event: Activating the EU Offshore Renewable Energy Strategy

Event overview

Date : 20/09/2022

Time : 10:30 - 12:00

This side event - co-organised by Ocean Energy Europe, Wind Europe and Normandy Region - proposed solutions for the main barriers to offshore renewables development and identified the next steps in implementing the EU Offshore Renewables Strategy.

Industry players as well as EU and national/regional policymakers discussed the progress to date and explored what needs to be done to achieve the strategy’s targets.

Finally, we drew a set of recommendations on how to unlock the growth of these industries and achieve Europe’s climate goals, energy independence and technology leadership.
