This Week's Highlights

Offshore Wind Supply Chain Information Session, February 21, 2019, Halifax (NS)

NOTE: Through a partnership with Marine Renewables Canada (MRC), NEIA members are eligible for the free MRC member rate

If your company has worked on Tidal, Ocean Tech or the Offshore Oil and Gas sectors, there are opportunities for you in Offshore Wind.

If anyone is looking for proof marine renewables can overcome economic and technological obstacles to emerge as an economic, sustainable, and reliable source of energy they need only look to the advances made by offshore wind. Cost per megawatt has fallen precipitously, electrical generation is rising rapidly, and reliability is in line with conventional generation methods.

While the offshore wind sector is still predominantly resident in the UK, Europe we are beginning to see projects appear in the United States and there is growing potential here in Canada. The arrival of CETA (Canada EU Trade Agreement) makes it easier for Canadian firms to take their resumes of accomplishment into wider markets. Next door in the United States offshore wind is also beginning to emerge as a similar market of opportunity.

Here at home Canada too has a major opportunity to advance offshore wind energy. Beyond domestic offshore wind opportunities, Canadian companies can also participate in a rapidly expanding international market. Globally, there are over 80 offshore wind projects operating in 15 countries and at the end of 2016, there were 12,193 MW of offshore wind installed and an additional 6,300 MW under construction. Learn what it takes to be part of the global supply chain at this free business information session.

This session will feature presentations from international speakers from Scotland, Germany and the US who will provide attendees insights into projects in their regions, challenges & success, developing a supply chain and opportunities that may exist. Attendees will also hear from Canadian companies currently active in the international offshore wind market and their experiences to date.
