Join GWO and GWEC for a webinar highlighting the findings of their new report “Powering the Future: Global Offshore Wind Workforce Outlook 2020-2024” and key takeaways specific to APAC markets. This landmark report addresses the workforce and training required to deliver offshore wind installations in key markets: North America, China (mainland), Taiwan, Japan, Vietnam, Brazil and South Korea. Drawing from proprietary training data, market growth forecasts and a series of expert interviews, this study answers the question: How much training is required, on a per MW basis, to work on-site building the pipeline of offshore wind in the target markets?

Alongside research partner Renewables Consulting Group, GWO and GWEC will share key conclusions from this industry study. These include the estimated trained workforce requirements for key offshore markets in the Asia-Pacific region by 2024, as well as recommendations for resolving critical supply chain bottlenecks, from barriers to establishing training centres to a lack of familiarity with training standards.

The Webcast will include:

  • Opening remarks – Qin Haiyan, General Secretary, CWEA; Director, China General Certification Center
  • Critical standards for success in offshore wind – Jakob Lau Holst, CEO, GWO
  • APAC market outlook for offshore wind to 2024 and impact of COVID-19 – Joyce Lee, Policy and Operations Director, GWEC
  • Insights and findings from the workforce study 2020-2024 – Ed Maxwell, Senior Associate, RCG

Q&A – joined by webcast speakers and other experts:

  • Alastair Dutton, Chair, Global Offshore Wind Task Force, GWEC
  • Liming Qiao, Asia Director, GWEC
