Offshore Wind session at Norway-Asia Business Summit 2019

Norway-Asia Business Summit 2019 will be held in Shanghai, China from 31 October to 2 November at W SHANGHAI – THE BUND (上海外滩W酒店).

Norway-Asia Business Summit is the most important meeting arena between Norwegian and Asian business leaders. The 2019 summit in Shanghai will bring together the frontier companies in both energy and ocean-based industries for a valuable encounter in one of the world’s most vibrant cities.

The objective of this event is to strengthen both trade and investment between Norway and Asia by encouraging cross-border cooperation amongst leading institutions, companies, and technology clusters.

At 15:00 to 17:00 on 1st November, Innovation Norway and the Chinese Wind Energy Association will host the Offshore Wind session at W Hotel, 1 Floor, Stage 2.

China and Norway are both global leaders in offshore wind energy. China has 20% of the worlds installed capacity for bottom-fixed offshore wind, leading the pace with Germany and the UK. Norwegian energy and technology companies are heavily involved in bottom-fixed and floating wind projects in the North Sea and Americas, and are moving into Asian markets.

The Norwegian energy company Equinor is developing as a broad energy company, building a material position in renewable energy. Equinor is powering European homes with renewable offshore wind from four offshore wind farms in the United Kingdom and Germany. They are building material offshore wind clusters in the UK, the US North East and in the Baltics, underlining their position as an offshore wind major. The company commissioned the world’s first floating offshore wind farm in 2017 off the coast of Scotland and is positioned for future floating wind options in several geographies, including UK, Norway and Asia.
