Feargal Brennan, will speak on the topic of offshore wind, explaining how it has developed over the past 20 years and exploring what the future may hold.
Offshore Wind in Northern Europe has, to date, been a tremendous success surpassing most commercial and technical expectations. The success has buoyed investor confidence and led to ambitious targets, including a detailed Sector Deal committed to 30 Gigawatts of electric power with 60% local content by 2030 representing a major component of UK strategic electricity policy.
Feargal Brennan is Professor of Offshore Engineering at the University of Strathclyde and Director of its Offshore Engineering Institute. His expertise is in structural integrity and its application to ships, offshore renewables and the Oil & Gas sector.
