Date: 29th-30th January 2018
2017 has been a landmark year for Scotland’s offshore wind sector. Scottish Renewables are running the 2018 Conference to facilitate discussion, innovation and networking. Beatrice – one of the largest private infrastructure projects ever developed in Scotland - and Statoil’s world-leading Hywind which will soon become a reality off the coast of Peterhead, indicate 2018 will be one of intense activity.
