Session 4: Soft Launch of Global Offshore Wind

3:15-4:00PM (Attendees access from 3:00PM)

The climate crisis requires immediate action and emission pathways that are aligned with the Paris Agreement. Offshore wind has enormous untapped potential to drive the global energy transition. The Global Offshore Wind Alliance (GOWA) is born out of a partnership between Denmark, IRENA, and GWEC with the ambition to create a global driving force for the uptake of offshore wind through political mobilisation and the creation of a global community of practice.

This event will seek to highlight the urgency of unleashing the potential of offshore wind, present GOWA's ambitions and vision and invite new partners from the public and private sector to join.
