Description

Welcome to the Offshore Wind Podcast, hosted by Stewart Mullin and David Lenti! Offshore wind is one of the world’s fastest growing energy sources, with strong year on year growth expected across the next few decades. Many nations are banking on offshore wind to play a major role in reaching their decarbonization and sustainability targets and helping their economies recover from the COVID-19 crisis. On the technology front, turbines are bigger and more powerful than ever, offshore wind farm capacity factors continue to rise and we are seeing a surge of interest from oil and gas giants seeking to transition their businesses away from fossil fuels, as well as increased competition from the developers who have championed offshore wind from day one.New markets in Asia, the Americas, and eventually Africa, accelerated growth in Europe, the rise of floating offshore wind and increasing interest in power-to-x solutions, are creating the basis for unprecedented growth in the industry. The offshore wind podcast series looks at the issues facing the offshore wind industry today, and opportunities for tomorrow.

 The APAC region is experiencing rapid growth in many markets. Nations in the region are starting to exploit their natural wind resources, especially in offshore. But as countries come to terms with this opportunity, we are also seeing familiar patterns emerge in relation to the challenges each market grapples with before the market can truly reach its potential. This episode looks to provide some insight into the local supply chain developments & local content requirements in the markets. Hosts Stewart Mullin and David Lenti are joined by Danish Ambassador to Korea Einar Jensen for a deep dive into the Korean wind market, which shows a huge opportunity for the global wind industry. The country is extremely committed to delivering on their National Determined Contributions (NDCs) and driving the green energy transition. But what will it cost to succeed in Korea? How should companies engage with the local supply chain? Will we see a sector deal like we have seen in other markets where government and industry come together to accelerate a smooth transition? All of these questions and more will be answered in this fire side chat.

Vestas competed a onshore near coastal wind project in Sri Lanka. 103MW. turbines are directly on the path of migration birds. They have not painted a blade in black yet
