Wind & Hydrogen

This course provides participants with a clear understanding of the key issues around Wind and Hydrogen and further investigates possible scenarios and its pivotal role in decarbonisation and reaching et zero. Participants will be equipped with the necessary insight and skills to face future challenges in the wind, offshore wind and hydrogen industries and to put in place effective strategies for quantum growth in the interconnected industries as they move from a regional to global decarbonisation solution.

Join this course as we discover the dramatic growth of the wind, especially offshore wind, and the pivotal role to be played across the globe by wind in all its forms and hydrogen. It consequently explores in-depth fundamental aspects of seabed characteristics, availability of supply chain, infrastructure, hybrid project design effects and integration of electrolysers on or offshore.

Course Benefits:

  • Gain in-depth fundamental aspects of seabed characteristics, availability of supply chain and infrastructure
  • Discover a number of case studies, including Projects PosHYdon and DolPHyn and the business opportunities
  • Look at the supply chain engagement and regeneration options around the coast and beyond
  • Explore innovations helping bring down the LCOE and look at future leasing rounds for the alternatives available
  • Investigate business strategies that countries can put in place to position themselves in a decarbonized industry

This Course Includes:

  • Access to all three sessions each lasting approximately three hours
  • All session recordings & any course materials covered during the course
  • Interactive format with dedicated Q&A sections with the trainer
  • Flexible access on any device
  • A certificate of attendance after full completion of the course


Attend live or watch the recordings. Each session includes dedicated Q&A sections throughout.

Meet the Trainer

Charley Rattan is a UK based offshore wind business advisor, trainer and highly experienced former energy project manager. He delivers practical global offshore wind and hydrogen business advice, problem solving and training. He is currently advising and mentoring companies engaging with the global energy transition with a focus on offshore wind, floating offshore wind and hydrogen.

Passionate about renewable energy and previously worked for Shell, Eon and SSE consenting hundreds of MW of wind energy assets. With a reputation for effective communication and managing complex, sometimes controversial projects that are delivered on time, safely and within budget.

What Attendees Are Saying

“I really enjoyed being exposed to the whole idea of a hydrogen economy. This was my first real introduction to the world of hydrogen and how it aligns with the offshore wind industry; I was really inspired by the trainer’s wealth of knowledge of the subject and I’m keen to learn even more.”

— Energy and Environment, Business Unit Lead

“The best part of the training was the level of engagement from the trainer; he was very clear in his explanations and was taking the time to answer all queries from trainees.”
