Expertise Hub VIDEO: We Have Only Scratched the Surface (WindEurope)


The technical and the economically attractive potential for deploying offshore wind in Europe is vast and we have only scratched the surface with the 13GW that we have today, according to WindEurope’s CEO Giles Dickson, who highlighted the key points from WindEurope’s latest report.

Offshore wind could, theoretically, make for one quarter of Europe’s power in 2030 at a cost of EUR 54/MWh, including the costs of grid connection and system integration.

Still, to reach the full potential of this renewable energy resource, two things are crucial: the right government policies which would set ambitious targets and regulatory frameworks that support the deployment of offshore wind; and planning and permitting systems and procedures that work.

Offshore WIND spoke with Giles Dickson at our Expertise Hub set up during Offshore Wind Energy 2017 in London (6-8 June).

Watch the interview above to find out more as Dickson discusses not only the European offshore wind industry, investment, employment and energy potential, but the offshore wind sector worldwide as well.

During Offshore Energy 2017 the Offshore WIND Expertise hub will be back on the exhibition floor.


Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference (OEEC) is one of Europe’s leading offshore energy events. It is unique in bringing together the oil & gas, offshore wind and marine energy industry. With the industry in transition, OEEC offers offshore energy professionals the ideal meeting place to network, discuss and learn about the future of energy. OEEC 2017 will be held at Amsterdam RAI on October 9, 10, 11, 2017.
