Government of the Netherlands

For the 8th consecutive year the Dutch Government organizes an extensive program during Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference.

Offshore Wind Masterclasses

The Government of the Netherlands hosts a program during OEEC 2023 where it hosts (invite-only) masterclass sessions and workshops on offshore wind for foreign government officials. The program brings together international government officials and a select group of foreign business partners, aiming to build new partnerships, enhance international relations and to share knowledge and the latest (policy) developments. During the afternoon the foreign guests will visit the exhibition floor.

NL Pavilion

The Dutch government can be found on OEEC’s exhibition floor at stand no. 1.327-1. The NL Pavilion is a gathering point for entrepreneurs, start-ups and government experts in offshore wind and green hydrogen. Start-ups in offshore wind have been given a spot at the pavilion so they can meet the international supply chain at OEEC23. At the pavilion you can also find an overview of what has been accomplished so far in offshore wind in the Netherlands. The Dutch government also focuses on trade promotion in renewable energy. Find out more about trade promotion at the pavilion to amongst others: Poland, the Baltics and Ireland.
