Past & future evolutions in (offshore) wind energy - keynote presentation by Henrik Stiesdal

Published on 08/06/21
During his keynote presentation at the 'Back to the future' seminar on 30 June Danish wind turbine inventor Henrik Stiesdal will talk about past & future evolutions in (offshore) wind energy.

On Wednesday 30 June, the 'Back to the future' seminar, as a part of the Wind Energy technology Summit 2021, will take place. This seminar will look back on the developments of the past 20 years in the onshore and offshore wind sector - which lessons can we learn from the recent history towards the new green deal and the ambitious international renewable energy targets for 2030 and beyond?  

The steep learning curve of the wind turbine industry has been a unique trajectory in history, its successes will be highlighted and explained by professionals from the industry. But there is still work ahead towards the further upscaling of the power range, decreasing costs and increasing reliability and efficiency of wind farms. Although the technology matures, certain challenges remain, such as power intermittency, or are introduced by exploring new markets, such as in floating wind power for example.

We therefore also look towards the near and the long-term future, especially in respect to technological developments towards 2030 and 2050. What will the future developments and innovation mean for the value chain, which new needs arise and which topics should be targeted by researchers during the coming years? Experts, early adopters and innovators from the sector, including Luc Vandenbulcke (CEO DEME), Bert Verdyck (Head of technology at ZF Wind Power) and Henrik Stiesdal (CEO Stiesdal A/S), will provide keynote presentation to share their insights with you. You will be inspired for sure !
