WFEO YEFL Webinar series “Engineering the Future – Fulfilling Offshore Wind Potential”

The WFEO Committee on Young Engineers / Future Leaders organized the webinar series “Engineering the Future – Fulfilling Offshore Wind Potential” on 1st September 2022.

Today, governments around the world are developing huge stimulus packages, to relieve the shock of the pandemic and inject a new sense of direction into their economies. There is an appetite for new solutions and the parallel threat of climate change is setting the context for much of the debate. Investing in green infrastructure plays a significant role and it is clear that the need for sustainable, reliable and affordable energy has never been greater.

There is clearly much potential for offshore wind, and some exciting opportunities to help fulfil this potential. If developers and investors can take full advantage, countries will soon be reaping the rewards in the form of abundant, affordable low-carbon energy.
