This session looks at the investors who are driving wind investment globally. Including institutional investors, corporates, IPPs, utilities, sovereign wealth funds. Wind is a global market and this will deal with global issues:

  • What impact has Covid-19 had on wind’s prospects in these key regions?
  • How will China’s 2060 net zero target affect wind investment globally?
  • Do you expect oil giants to have a huge impact on wind in the 2020s?
  • Will the emergence of new technologies - such as green hydrogen and energy storage – draw in new types of investors into wind?
  • Can firms with a wind-focused strategy thrive in such a multi-technology market?
  • What are the risks to the industry if they don’t continue to improve here?
  • Do investors take enough interest in O&M at wind farms? Do you expect this to change in the next 2 to 5 years?
  • What role do you foresee for artificial intelligence and machine learning in the global wind sector?
