RGI-WindEurope-OCEaN Conference: Speeding up Nature Positive Offshore Energy Infrastructure Deployment

On 19 October, join RGI, WindEurope and the Offshore Coalition for Energy and Nature (OCEaN) in Brussels for a conference discussing challenges and possible solutions to accelerate offshore energy infrastructure deployment while also restoring Europe’s marine ecosystems.

On 19 October, join the Renewables Grid Initiative (RGI), WindEurope and the Offshore Coalition for Energy and Nature (OCEaN) in an event discussing challenges and possible solutions to accelerate offshore energy infrastructure deployment while also restoring Europe’s marine ecosystems.

The combined crises of climate change, biodiversity, and energy security require an acceleration of renewable energy and electricity grids deployment, with offshore wind playing an increasingly relevant contribution in reaching renewable energy targets. However, the degraded state of our marine ecosystems requires due consideration: offshore wind energy projects and connecting grid infrastructure, when properly planned and deployed, can and should instrumentally contribute to the restoration of our seas and become nature positive.

To reconcile potential conflicts between nature and energy infrastructure and reduce risk of delays, careful and comprehensive planning needs to be undertaken and identified solutions need to be deployed at scale by permitting authorities and project developers alike as part of the timely achievement of EU’s renewable energy and nature restoration goals.

We therefore invite you to register for our event to learn about the joint solutions for implementing, financing, and disseminating practices on nature positive offshore energy and grid infrastructure.
