WHY should you attend Next generation wind energy?

We are at the cusp of rapid and immense expansion of the wind power sector, with the industry positioning itself at the centre of the energy transition and post-covid economic recovery. Europe’s Green Deal is aiming for half of the continent’s power supply to come from wind energy by 2050, but before this can happen the sector needs to overcome significant roadblocks. Gaps in policy frameworks, underinvested technology developments and maintaining a competitive LCOE whilst other renewable energies develop are just some of the challenges faced by the industry. Bringing together senior attendees from Heads of Wind, Asset Managers and Investment Managers, the Next Generation Wind Energy event is the platform for policy makers, investors, innovators and wind power industry stakeholders to find solutions that will shape the future growth of the wind power sector 

what to expect

The event format will provide content with actionable insights and networking opportunities for real collaboration to build real relationships that can continue to develop beyond the virtual. We will be focusing on the 3 key areas of policy, collaboration and technology throughout and considering developments in the offshore and onshore.

gather non-biased opinions

As Windpower Monthly is an independent organisation and not a lobbying or member body we are able to deliver a balance of expert perspectives expressing alternative few points.


digital platform

Reflective of the ‘new normal’ of working from home, our previous event was held digitally using a platform that delivers all of the elements of a live event including: high level and strategic content, Q&A interaction with speakers during sessions, opportunities to network with industry leaders in the audience and speaking. 

Content from the event was recorded and is available on demand for 3 months after the event.
