The Italian offshore wind market

Oksenøyveien 8, Oslo, Norway
Aker HQ

Norwegian Offshore Wind, The Norwegian Embassy in Rome and Mainstream invite you to a workshop in order to break down the bottlenecks and strategize solutions to successfully innovate, commercialize, and implement offshore wind projects in Italy.

The Italian government is currently setting new targets for offshore wind by 2050. There is a great interest in unleashing new development opportunities and create strategies to build out a supply chain capable of reinforcing the incoming wave of projects. Terna, the Italian grid operator, has received applications for more than 95 GW of offshore wind projects.

In doing so we have invited partner and country lead, Eugenio Tranchino, from Watson Farley & Williams to present their new report on the offshore wind market in Italy.
