Offshore windmills in a blue sea

In October 2019, there is a unique opportunity to learn more about the Dutch approach to offshore wind energy. Meet key players and government officials in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, during the Offshore Energy Exhibition and Conference 2019 (OEEC 7–9 October 2019). For more than 12 years, the OEEC has been Europe’s leading gathering of the entire offshore energy industry (offshore wind, marine energy, oil and gas).

Dutch public and private parties team up to design, develop, build, and maintain high quality offshore wind farms in the North Sea. Together, we are proving that offshore wind is a powerful solution to achieve our climate goals cost effectively.

Our approach provides greater certainty for project developers, increases investor confidence, and drives down overall costs. It requires dedicated teamwork, collaboration, and innovation across the board to ensure every wind farm has a safe and sustainable future. We are keen to share our knowledge with others. Let’s work together to utilise the full potential of offshore wind energy and show the world that wind and water works.
