Team Finland invites you to discuss offshore wind opportunities in Finland and the auction model for water areas to be leased for offshore wind power.
Wind power is needed to achieve EU climate targets and Finland’s even more ambitious climate and energy policy objectives. Finland’s objective is to be carbon neutral in 2035 and carbon negative soon after that which is why the role of near shore and offshore wind power is becoming increasingly important.
The progress in wind power technologies has been strong in recent years, and considerable amounts of onshore wind power are currently being built in Finland on market terms. Profitability is expected to improve in the near future, partly because of the advancing technologies. Industry needs green electricity and there are ambitious plans for hydrogen production and routes in the Nordics.
This is why various operators are showing a growing interest in Finland’s marine areas.
The event will bring key players together on the eve of the Hamburg Wind Energy conference and give an insight to the future opportunities in the wind sector in Finland.
Venue: Finnish Seemannskirche, Ditmar-Koel-Str. 6, 20459 Hamburg
