Natural Power is the headline sponsor of this year’s Irish Wind Energy Association (IWEA) Offshore Wind Conference which takes place on 12th September 2019 at the Ballsbridge Hotel, Dublin.
Seán Manley, Country Director for Natural Power in Ireland will be delivering the sponsor’s address. He said: “Natural Power is delighted to sponsor the Offshore Wind Energy Conference, as the industry gears up for accelerated growth in the coming years following the positive indicators in the recently-published Climate Action Plan. Our team of offshore experts has an established track record of delivering a wide range of services to the global offshore wind industry, including project management, due diligence, ecological surveying, environmental impact assessment, energy yield assessment and health and safety advisory services.
“Natural Power has a longstanding association with the Irish offshore wind industry dating back more than 20 years, when we initially commenced feasibility studies on the Codling Wind Park project, prior to successfully managing the EIA and consenting process. Our Dublin-based and wider global team continue to be involved in delivering offshore development services to Irish projects and we look forward to working with IWEA and other key stakeholders to facilitate the delivery of operational offshore wind projects that will contribute significantly to our 70% 2030 RES-E target.”
There have been many exciting developments recently for offshore wind including the upcoming publication of the Marine Planning and Development Management Bill (MPDM) (previously referred to as ‘MAFA’), encouraging signs for inclusion of offshore wind in upcoming RESS auctions as early as 2021, and signals from DCCAE on the treatment and development of offshore grid connections in future. All of these important topics will be covered at the conference, together with the outcomes and developments from IWEA’s Offshore Wind Supply Chain study which aims to ensure the supply chain for offshore wind in Ireland develops in time to capitalise on 2030 ambitions.
