How experience from the UK’s satellite sector can help drive offshore wind cost reduction

By on

A half day conference at London’s Excel will investigate how the lessons and opportunities identified from the UK’s highly successful satellite industry can help to unlock a saving of more than 1% on the levelised cost of energy generated from offshore wind through improvements to operations and maintenance activity.  A vibrant and growing offshore wind sector represents huge potential economic value to the UK, but the industry still has some way to go to drive down costs and make it more cost competitive with other forms of energy generation.

Organised by ORE Catapult in collaboration with the Satellite Applications Catapult, the conference session features key speakers from the two sectors including:

  • Chair: Ignacio Marti, Innovation & Research Director, ORE Catapult
  • Terri Freemantle, Earth Observation Specialist, Satellite Applications Catapult
  • Reuben Wright, Head of Satellite Applications and SSA, Deimos
  • Matt Stickland, Senior Lecturer, Strathclyde University
  • David Critchley, CEO, Proteus

Simon Edmonds, Catapult Programme Director at Innovate UK, said: “This important conference is an excellent example of how different Catapults are working together to showcase the full range of ways they can help businesses innovate and develop new products or services. Innovate UK is keen to see this cross-Catapult working develop and make a real impact.”

Interview/photo opportunities:

  • Members of the media are invited along to the conference on Wednesday, 24 June 2015 from 13:00 to 17:30.
  • Specific interview requests should be addressed to lee.madigan@ore.catapult.org.uk
