EERA DeepWind’2019 – 16th Deep Sea Offshore Wind R&D Conference

 

16 – 18 January, Trondheim, Norway

From January 16th to 18th the EERA DeepWind’2019 took place in the lovely and snow-covered Trondheim. During this international event there was presented the best on-going research and innovation related to offshore wind farms, both bottom-fixed and floating.

The conference was hosted by SINTEF and NTNU and organized in cooperation with the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) joint program on wind energy.

The programme included a mix of plenary presentations with broad appeal and presentations in parallel sessions and posters on specific science and technology themes.

During the closing session by Aisan Cronin, chair ETIPwind, summarized the main points in the conference.

The way forward for offshore wind:

  • Offshore can deliver the bulk power needed for the energy transition
  • When offshore hits power parity it will be the biggest disrupted in the power industry – in newer times
  • China will become a leading driver of scale going forward – continued 2-way mutual cooperation is essential for local and global benefit
  • Delivering the promise of offshore will be an enormous effort driven by the research innovation community and investors seeing the opportunity.

 

The presentations and posters from the EERA DeepWind 2019 conference are now available at the conference website.
