Evolving Energy Through Innovation

Brandmarion and Costa Renewables will be organising Offshore Seminar on 15 February 2018. This one-day event brings together leading energy developers, united in their commitment to securing clean, economical energy for the future. The topic of the 2018 edition of Offshore Seminar is ‘Evolving Energy through Innovation’. What will the future energy mix be composed of? Will there still be a place for conventional energy sources and, if so, what changes will have to take place for those energy sources to continue to be part of the offshore energy mix? How can innovation accelerate the energy transition, and decrease the cost of offshore energy? What are the main innovative areas, and who are the main players? What is the financial climate for innovative ideas? Get all the answers by attending the Offshore Seminar, where shared insight and expertise combine with the latest ideas and technological initiatives. Learn from both existing industry experts like Rabobank, Van Oord Offshore and Innovation Link, and pioneering start-ups about their experiences, success stories, lessons learned, and their views on the future.
