WEBINAR: 11 June, 13:00- 14:30 CEST

Market: France , France


Team Norway Paris including Norwegian Energy Partners, the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Paris, Innovation Norway and the French-Norwegian Chamber of commerce,  invites you to join this first in a series of webinars on opportunities for Norwegian developers and suppliers in French offshore wind.

France was late out of the starting blocks but has now tipped to become one of the world’s leading offshore wind markets. As part of its ambitious energy transition plan, the French Government is planning to release tenders for  for 8.75 GW of offshore wind energy capacity in the period up to 2028, including several commercial tenders for floating wind. This comes in addition to seven bottom-fixed projects and four demo project for floating wind already under development.

In total, France has now made legal commitments to increase installed offshore wind capacity with 1 GW annually to 2.4 GW by 2023, and 5.2 GW by 2028. Along with high ambitions and several tenders, important adjustments have been made to simplify tender and planning processes, making it easier for international actors to participate. This also creates exciting opportunities for Norwegian developers and suppliers.

Team Norway Paris with NORWEP invite you to learn more about these opportunities, and how to engage with the French industry. The webinar will be followed up with more specific project updates and online B2B meetings with French stakeholders in the autumn.
