In the wake of recent geopolitical events, the European Union has accelerated efforts to achieve energy resilience by expediting green energy development. The EU has vowed to build about 300 GW of offshore wind capacity by 2050. At the heart of this lies the challenge of developing a coordinated offshore and onshore transmission infrastructure in an economically and technically efficient way. 

Global Transmission Report will organise its 4th Annual Conference on Offshore Wind Transmission Europe on March 14-15, 2023 at  Hilton Amsterdam.  
The objective of the conference is to discuss plans, strategies and technologies, and present solutions for the development of offshore transmission infrastructure to integrate the envisioned OSW capacity in the region. The conference will also highlight the relevance of interconnectors, energy islands and meshed offshore grids for the EU’s interconnected green energy transition.

Giving a massive boost to India’s fledgling green hydrogen sector, the country’s union cabinet approved the National Green Hydrogen Mission in January 2023 with an initial budget outlay of Rs 197,440 million. The mission targets to scaleup the country’s annual green hydrogen production capacities to at least 5 million metric tonnes per annum by 2030, with a further potential to reach 10 million metric tonnes per annum. This will be supported by the growth of associated renewable energy capacity of about 125 GW.

Renewable Watch will organise its 5th edition of Green Hydrogen in India on April 18-19, 2023, at Le Meridien, New Delhi.

The mission of this two-day conference is to discuss the key policy developments, shed light on the lessons from early experiences, assess the future plans of developers, oil and gas majors, industries and manufacturers, as well as highlight the challenges and opportunities in India’s green hydrogen sector. This event will bring together policymakers, oil and gas majors, renewable energy developers, large industrial consumers, electrolyser manufacturers, technology providers, researchers, consultants and investors to share their perspective.

The offshore wind (OSW) industry is finally gaining momentum along the US Pacific coast. California has set an ambitious target of 25 GW by 2045 and is preparing a strategic plan to be released by mid-2023. Oregon has fastened the pace to identify lease areas. The optimism on the west coast appears to be spreading to Washington as well, with developers submitting lease requests. To realize their OSW goals the western states would need to prepare ahead and address the challenges posed by complex regulatory requirements, constrained supply chains and inadequate transmission infrastructure.
After organizing successful conferences on Offshore Wind Transmission in New York over the last six years, Global Transmission is excited to announce the launch edition of its ‘Offshore Wind Transmission West’ conference, to be held on June 14-15, 2023 at San Francisco Marriott Union Square. The mission of the conference is to discuss challenges and present solutions for building cost-effective and efficient transmission infrastructure for meeting OSW targets on the Pacific Coast.
