Offshore Wind Farms – So What?
Danish Mrs. Rikke V. Stoltz is a seasoned, knowledgeable expert within the field. Join her in this truly different Speak and enjoy a highly energetic & fun speaking voyage on how this whole new offshore wind industry is developing.
Mixed into this Speak is Rikke’s own entrepreneurial story on pursuing a dream: Making it possible to efficiently install offshore wind farms without public subsidies. This she successfully pursued by building the world’s largest wind farm installation vessels.
The Speak also includes some interesting history. Back in the 1970s Denmark pioneered the commercial wind power industry. Still today a substantial share of the wind turbines around the world are produced by Danish manufacturers. In Denmark wind power today generates >43% of Denmark’s total electricity consumption. The country has ambitiously adopted a plan to increase the share of electricity production from wind to 50% by 2020 and to 84% by 2035.

To compare a windmill with modern WTGs (Wind Turbine Generators) is like comparing an ox to a lamborghini..Rikke V. Stoltz
