The Conference will be structured around the notion of “Corridors to Sustainable Blue Development”, which is also the title of the event. There will be three main sessions:
- Corridors to enhanced cooperation: focused on the main political developments on the Blue Economy in the region
- Corridors to project cooperation: with projects that lead the way regarding impact, innovation and replicability/ transferability
- Corridors to funding and financial cooperation: bridging the gap between projects and potential sources of support at the outset of the new programming period 2021-2027
Electric City is a new onshore and offshore wind event, with participants from wind and beyond – heavy industry, mobility, district and domestic heating, storage, hybrids, hydrogen and many more – to join the conversation on how we build a clean economy. This means new voices at the conference, debating changes we need in policy, business models and technology to deliver the transition. It means new business partners and customers for you on the exhibition floor. Including people who haven’t engaged with wind before but now want to. It means a unique event where you’ll find the new technologies, new thinking and new relationships to power the energy transition – and Europe’s Green Deal.
