Opportunities in Offshore Renewables for Scottish SMEs in Oil and Gas – ETP Diversification Workshop

26 January 2015

This free event, taking place the afternoon before The Scottish Renewables Wind and Supply Chain Conference, will inform you of the specific steps you need to take to diversify into the Offshore Wind sector. Who are the companies that you need to do business with? What does your company need to look like to be part of the supply chain? Which regulatory framework will apply to contracts? When will the forthcoming offshore wind developments be rolled-out?

As well as getting the answers to these questions, you will leave the workshop with a personalised check-list specific to you company. Not to mention having made some key contacts from industry, government agencies and academia.
