Panel discussion – Floating Offshore Wind: accelerating progress and driving growth

It is estimated that by the mid-2030s  20% or more of new offshore wind could be floating. This calls for additional fit-for-purpose CfD-like schemes, and similar supporting mechanisms, to be created to specifically foster investment and growth in floating, while still supporting seabed-fixed offshore wind. With the technology having been proven reliable, pilot projects should be ready to be scrapped and commercial units rolled out.Does this mean that industry standards are starting to emerge for floating platform solutions, and is the industry ready to be invested on a commercial scale?

  • Legislative and regulatory updates to support public-private cooperation
  • The challenge of turning leasing auctions capacity into reality: overcoming supply chain restrictions, price instability and technology and operational risks
  • Route to market: integration issues and substation sharing. Is the grid going to be able to connect new floating projects in a timely manner?
  • Financing and insuring an industry with higher risks of failure
  • Can adding hydrogen production elements revolutionise floating wind economics?
