Wind Energy Summit 2022 : Emerging offshore technologies: Production of green electrons & molecules at sea

After last year’s successful first edition, Sirris is now organising the second Wind Energy Technology Summit in partnership with OWI-Lab, Agoria, Blue Cluster and WaterstofNetNet. This series of events and an innovation masterclass is aimed to inform and inspire Flemish companies and organisations when it comes to technology developments in the (offshore) wind energy sector. We will also be sharingthe prevailing market insights and innovation trends in the industry. Our aim: give established parties a boost with the latest insights, but also give newcomers a better idea of this innovative and rapidly evolving sector. Wind energy on land and at sea is bound to play an important part in the energy mix in Belgium in the years ahead. A good reason indeed to organise this specific thematic summit.
