[Impact Webinar] Sailing to the Future: Cultivating Resilient and Sustainable Supply Chains in Australia’s Wind Energy Development

Date & Time: 15:00 - 17:00, Melbourne Time, March 4

Format: Digital Conference (Zoom Webinar)

Description:

Wind power lies at the core of Australia's energy future, serving as a cornerstone in the nation's pursuit of renewable energy. Onshore wind has attained a level of maturity in Australia, while simultaneously, the expansive coastline and formidable winds offer an unparalleled opportunity for offshore wind deployment.

Unlocking the full potential of Australia's wind energy requires a resilient and cost-effective supply chain tailored to its unique geography and energy demands. Collaboration among government, industry stakeholders, and global partners is essential to cultivate a supply chain ecosystem capable of meeting the evolving needs of wind projects.

Join our webinar as we delve into fortifying Australia's onshore and offshore wind supply chains. Together, we'll explore strategies to integrate cross-sector capabilities and foster innovation, catapulting Australia to the forefront of the global wind energy landscape.
