    Description

    The goal of the 2-day workshop was to link practitioners with academics working across policy, finance and engineering in the U.S. and Europe to discuss the ‘grand challenges’ for offshore wind financing today and in the future.

    Key findings

    The workshop identified five ‘grand challenges’ for offshore wind financing today and in the future. We created a space for new ideas to develop a larger agenda for research, business and policy actions, and to map out opportunities for collaboration in this rapidly evolving sector. The setup ensured that researchers' and practitioners' knowledge is integrated into the development of innovative solutions to accelerate sustainable investments in the sector.

    The workshop brought together some of the best experts on offshore wind financing for an intimate discussion and development of ideas. We had a key note address by Jerome Guillet, one of the world’s leading experts on offshore wind financing. Research participation included Columbia University, Dartmouth College, ETH Zürich, Imperial College, Technical University of Denmark DTU. Practitioners participation included most of the largest and most experienced players in the offshore wind sector.

    The workshop took place June 23-24 2022 at Columbia University in New York City, with a preceding conference dinner.
