COP26 Panel: The UK’s future Offshore Wind workforce – challenge or opportunity?

We are pleased to take part in a panel session at COP26 to discuss what many companies across our sector are doing to make the just transition a reality.

Through a series of live discussions at the ‘COP26 Energy Transition Hub’ the Offshore Wind Industry Council will explore the challenges and opportunities in growing the UK’s offshore wind workforce. In doing so, they’ll explore the lessons other countries can learn, and how we can ensure a Just Transition from carbon intensive industries to clean energy.
