This is a critical time for renewable energy and offshore wind, with important conversations happening at all levels. All of this makes RenewableUK’s Global Offshore Wind Conference and Exhibition (GOW) 2022 a not-to-be-missed event for anyone working within or linked to the sector. The largest event dedicated to offshore wind in the whole of the UK, it will be the perfect platform from which to engage with the wider industry, hear directly from Government ministers, get up-to-date with the latest projects, share best practice protocols and be truly inspired.

Ministerial keynotes

The 2-day programme will be delivered by over 200 speakers, including an array of experts in their relevant fields. Leading the must-see sessions will be various Government ministers from England and Scotland. The Rt Hon Kwasi Kwarteng MP, Secretary of State, Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy will be presenting a keynote speech on floating wind; the Rt Hon Greg Hands, MP, Minister for State, Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy will be in conversation with Dan McGrail, Chief Executive RenewableUK; and the Rt Hon Michael Matheson, Cabinet Secretary for Net Zero, Energy & Transport, Scottish Government, will be part of a session entitled “Floating wind: Building a global economy”. Join us to see what they have to say, gain insight into Government plans and support of the industry, and to ask your own questions.

New theatres

Brand new for GOW22, we are delighted to present the Supply Chain Studio. Consisting of interactive workshops, surgeries and 1-to-1 networking sessions, this studio will put a spotlight on supply chain challenges, achievements and conversations for the future, bringing together the diverse range of individuals and organisations involved. Understand the structure of the sector at large, explore current activities within UK Clusters, discuss the do’s and don’ts of tendering, consider the goals of strategic development in the sector and so much more. Designed by the RenewableUK Supply Chain Working Group, this is presented by industry, for industry!

An ambitious programme all-round!

With so much going on in the world of energy and renewables, RenewableUK is thrilled to present such an eclectic programme. Several favourite theatres will be returning from previous events with the support of industry, including:

Energy Transition Zone, with ScottishPower Renewables

The topic is decarbonisation and everything related. Attend sessions about consenting and constructability, habitats compensation, derogation, biodiversity, zonal planning in the Celtic Sea, supply chain modelling, lessons learnt from abroad, among many others.

Innovation Zone, with Vestas

Join us to discuss novelty installation vessels, cost reduction, utilisation of AI and data science, cable monitoring, dynamic approaches to operations and maintenance, innovative floating wind systems and more.

Partnership Hub, with Siemens Gamesa

The topic is industry partnerships and how to make the very most of a collaborative approach to projects or key aspects. New for 2022, drop by the Partnership Hub to see some of the best examples of local and global offshore wind partnerships.

Sold-out exhibition

Enthusiasm for the potential of offshore wind, coupled with a significant appetite for face-to-face meetings, meant that the exhibition space for GOW22 sold out weeks before the event. There will be more than 170 companies from 42 countries represented, providing a fantastic opportunity to connect with people in-person, build relationships and share experiences with a vast array of like-minded individuals. Whether you’re looking for new project partners, innovative equipment, to expand your team or find a new position, this is the place to be. Why not come along to the RenewableUK members’ welcome reception or exhibitor networking drinks to meet new people over a drink?

Discover what your association does for you

RenewableUK offers members a myriad of features and benefits to support growth, project development and networking. If you don’t already make the most of it, drop by our stand at GOW22 to discover EnergyPulse.
