Recharge on board for Show Dailies at Offshore Wind Energy 2017
The event, which is expected to attract more than 10,000 visitors and over 400 exhibitors, is co-organized by WindEurope and UK association RenewableUK.
Recharge Editor-in-Chief Darius Snieckus said, “We are very pleased to further develop our relationship with WindEurope and RenewableUK as the official publication of Offshore Wind Energy 2017. Europe is the beating heart of offshore wind and anyone doing business in the sector should be in London in June for this event.”
Recharge, which has produced Dailies for WindEurope’s annual and offshore events since 2013, will cover June’s Offshore event from the conference halls to the exhibitor stands, filing real-time on to www.rechargenews.com, publishing Dailies for distribution to all speakers and delegates, and distributing a special offshore wind edition of its award-winning Recharge magazine.
Speaking about the news, WindEurope CEO Giles Dickson said: “Offshore Wind Energy 2017 is the largest and most significant gathering of wind industry players in the world, representing every sector of the wind industry in Europe and beyond. It goes without saying that this event is unbeatable as an opportunity to build contacts, promote your brand, exchange ideas, and connect with those at the forefront of offshore wind. I am truly delighted that Recharge will be there with us as media partner and publisher of the Show Dailies – they play a fundamental role in keeping everyone up to speed with all the latest developments at the busiest and most dynamic wind event there is, and I look forward to this exciting collaboration.”
RenewableUK CEO Hugh McNeal agreed, stating that “The eyes of the world will be on London this June. Offshore Wind Energy 2017 is going to be the world’s biggest offshore wind show, with a global audience gathering to do business. Having Recharge help us tell that story live from the venue and conveying the size of the offshore opportunity on offer here in the UK and around the world is really important.”
Recharge Editor-in-Chief Darius Snieckus added: “Offshore wind is fast becoming a mainstream energy source. The global fleet grew by a further 2.2 GW last year, to almost 14.5GW, but as importantly, in the most advanced markets, costs are being driven down to more and more competitive levels. In the UK, the government’s 2020 target of £100/MWh was hit four years early, marking a better than 32% drop in prices since 2011-12.”
WindEurope’s last offshore event drew in over 8,000 from more than 50 countries around the world and some 10,000 delegates from more than 20 countries are expected this year.
