Business leaders debate the future of offshore wind

GERMANY: At EWEA Offshore 2013 wind business leaders spoke to Windpower TV about the expansion of offshore wind beyond the relatively established markets.

Iberdrola managing director Jonathan Cole, Alstom executive vice president Jérôme Pécresse, Siemens EMEA offshore CEO Michael Hannibal and GWEC secretary general Steve Sawyer spoke to Nadia Weekes of Windpower Offshore.

The panel illustrated what the offshore wind landscape would look like in five to ten years. They also highlighted what would be required to develop wind projects in the future.

Other discussion points include the model of the way projects will be built and whether a full EPC model or multi-contracting will prevail. The panel also spoke of policy, technological development, cost and public perception.
