Become part of the greatest new energy project in North West Europe

Over the coming decades, the North Sea will become the centre of the North West European energy system. A vision has been developed for the region to become the major European hub for offshore wind production while making optimal use of synergies with the existing offshore energy industry.

This three-day intensive programme offers a unique opportunity to become part of this exciting new development at the heart of the energy transition. You will be brought fully up to speed on the vision for the region and all the latest developments by experts who have been involved in this project from the start.

The course has been developed in cooperation with DOB Academy, a well-known education centre for offshore energy professionals in Delft.

  • Includes interactive cases

How you benefit

  • First-hand knowledge of greatest new energy project in Northwest Europe
  • Identify new opportunities
  • Acquire international network of peers and experts
