Renewables UK: Global Offshore Wind conference

On 29th and 30th of September, Barba sailed to Royal Victoria Dock at ExCeL for the Renewables UK: Global Offshore Wind conference. This conference included over 200 world-class speakers and 150 global exhibitions to discuss the future of using offshore wind as a source of renewable energy for the future. 

Andreas was invited to give the opening address at the climate business leaders COP26 breakfast and later presented the Arctic Sense project on the Energy Transition stage. At the climate breakfast we shared Ocean Bottles filled with seawater collected at 80 Degrees North to guests to inspire future action for Arctic conservation. Attendees also had a chance to visit the boat and hear about the crew’s voyage from the Arctic. 

We are very grateful to the support of our partners, such as the Norwegian British Chamber of Commerce, who helped facilitate our participation.
