The global offshore wind industry has a record number of auctions planned to kick-off in 2024, totaling more than 50 GW, and expected to be the most competitive auctions to date.

At the same time, policymakers are exploring new ways to design future auctions that reflect evolving needs that go beyond pure economics, e.g., addressing issues related to resilience and sustainability.

How will new auction design elements like non-price criteria, resilience, and project completion incentives affect the competitive landscape? And what does this mean for the development and health of the offshore wind sector at large?

Join our upcoming Wavelength Roundtable, where Rina Bohle Zeller, Senior Specialist, Global Public Affairs at Vestas, Lena Kitzing, Head of Division for DTU Wind and Energy Systems, and Katherine Dykes, VP Engineering at Aegir Insights, will be discussing future offshore wind auction designs and how they could impact sector development.

Wednesday, 29 May at 14:00 CET.
