This year, we will be delivering our Financing Wind Europe conference and Wind Investment Awards programme as one, big 1-day event! This digital programme will provide you with the perfect opportunity to meet, connect with and celebrate the best people and companies working in the global wind market.
Now more than ever, we are looking forward to celebrating best practice in the wind industry and help it to thrive in the coming years while enabling top industry players to forge strong business connections.The event will be exclusively for our members – the key decision-makers in global wind!
We are seeing a divergence between the fortunes of the offshore wind and onshore wind markets in Europe.
In offshore wind, we have seen a string of exciting developments in 2020 and 2021. Multi-gigawatt projects are reaching financial close, emerging markets are opening up, turbines are growing, and oil giants are moving in. It is a time of great optimism.
In onshore wind, however, the future is less clear. The market is active – turbines of 8.2GW were ordered onshore in 2020 – but more must be done if onshore wind is to be a key part of Europe’s ‘green recovery’ from the Covid-19 crisis. Developers and investors are facing tortuous permitting processes and uncertain growth pipelines.
In Financing Wind Europe 2021, we will talk to the leading players in European wind to find out the strengths and weaknesses of the industry in the post-Covid world.
