Oliver Knight will be presenting in “How can Norway contribute to offshore wind production taking off in emerging economies”. He will present his report on the potential for offshore wind in emerging markets, to give a perspective on both the great opportunities for doing business, and how offshore wind could be an alternative to coal in these markets and therefore an important climate solution.
