Session info

The need for offshore wind innovation for the energy transition. Where do we go from here? The EU targets 80%-95% CO2 emission reduction by 2050; the Netherlands 95%. This means a transition from fossil fuels to zero-carbon energy sources and drives a massive electrification effort, in transport, industry and households. The options to generate renewable electricity for the medium term (2030) are limited: for the Netherlands this is wind and solar. For the longer term (2050) other options may prove viable. Can we make that transition happen? What does the future seascape look like? What innovations are required?
