Offshore Wind Power: Economics & Risk

London, United Kindgom
April 11, 2011

A 1-Day introduction to issues of cost, competition, opportunity and risk in the offshore wind business

Course objectives

There are plans for a huge expansion in offshore wind, with many improved and enabling technologies being actively pursued. However, big challenges still exist from a business case perspective, as offshore wind competes with other energy solutions for access to key components such as investment capital, regulatory favour and stakeholder support. This informative and enlightening 1-day course provides an excellent introduction to the key issues, including the economic and risk factors within offshore wind power itself, and the context of the wider energy market in which it must compete.


All Green Power Academy courses run in an informal and extremely interactive manner, encouraging discussion and questions, to ensure that participants get the most value from the day.

This course is designed for those with a commercial and business interest in wind power, but assumes no prior knowledge. All aspects, be they economic or technological, are presented in clear language, making the course of value to a range of job functions including: senior managers across the wind supply chain; investors; utilities and power producers; regulators and other stakeholders.
