Energy Talks&Drinks – Hacking climate change: opportunities for floating systems

On 5 November 2020 from 17:30 hrs to 19:00 hrs Buccaneer Delft and Maritime Delta organise Energy Talks&Drinks:

A rising sea level and extreme weather conditions as a result of a rapid changing climate forces us to deal with new challenges. When we approach these challenges with the goal to create a sustainable environment and restore our planet, we would have the best of both worlds.

A way to address the challenges resulting from the rising sea level are floating developments, like floating cities. It builds resilience against climate change, it gives space to new eco-systems and it enables bio-based economies to grow. Furthermore, it creates opportunities for our energy system. Developments as floating solar and wind offer big potential in both economic as environmental ways.

Episode I
Together with Maritime Delta we will look into the latest technology developments in floating systems and the future perspectives. During a two series event we will take a deep dive in floating solar and wind. On November 5, during Buccaneer Delft’s Energy Talks&Drinks we’ll focus on research developments and applications in floating solar.

SPEAKERS:

William Otto, Senior Project Manager – MARIN
Opportunities for floating systems, creating resilient cities

Wim Soppe, Senior Scientist – TNO
Current state of research

Allard van Hoeken, Founder & CEO – Oceans of Energy
Application of floating solar

Philip Drontmann, Fieldlab Green Economy Westvoorne
Project consortium floating solar

The event will be moderated by Bob Meijer, Director at TKI Wind op Zee.
