A three session course led by an industry expert exploring the challenges and opportunities for stakeholders and those interested in entering the emerging supply chain – the potential rewards are huge, do not be left behind.

As we move towards a zero-carbon future, floating wind and the potential integration of hydrogen promise to transform the energy sector. Combining these technologies can revolutionise the way we think about extracting energy; transport and energy storage – creating a new economic infrastructure and supply chain where huge opportunities await.

The three session course is led by Charley Rattan, a respected international hydrogen and offshore wind expert and energy insider and thought leader. With over 25 years’ real-world renewable experience and a track record of successful major project delivery, Charley is a trusted strategic advisor to global energy companies and an advocate and facilitator for the emerging innovation energy market.
