09:20 PANEL: Financing and investment trends in 2024
Recent studies show that renewable energy sources are expected to provide up to 50% of global power generation by 2030, and up to 85% by 2050. Solar is expected to be the biggest contributor of renewable energy, followed by wind energy. Where do investors see the biggest opportunities now, in Europe and globally? How are these trends expected to change in the next six years, as we approach 2030?

10:05 PANEL: Funding and capital for supply chain growth
Supply chain bottlenecks and supply chain fragility have become hot topics in the offshore wind industry, and governments globally are taking steps to attract green industry supply chain investments and localise supply chains. The panel will explore where the UK stands in this race, the sources of finance available for new supply chain investment, and whether existing funding frameworks and policy levers are delivering growth at the right pace.
