Financing Wind Offshore: Offshore Wind + Hybrid Technologies, Hosted by Tamarindo
This panel will look in greater detail about the potential to develop offshore wind projects with hybrid technologies such as green hydrogen production or battery storage. The IRA has sought to put the US at the forefront of the emerging green hydrogen and storage sectors, so in this discussion, speakers will consider the links between these and offshore wind.
- How seriously are developers considering pairing offshore wind with green hydrogen or other green fuel production in US waters?
- Why should OSW developers consider battery storage for their schemes?
- Are these technologies vital to unlock additional profitability and revenue streams at offshore wind assets in a fast-evolving market? Or do they simply introduce a new element of risk that makes them difficult to finance in the current economic climate?
- How can states reduce risk for developers?
