Let's build a sustainable future together!


Do you have innovative ideas, solutions or products that can help shape the next generation of offshore wind power?

We have created this platform to identify, implement and scale innovative ideas, solutions or products that can be applied to accelerate the offshore wind industry. We are looking to collaborate with start-ups, companies, individuals and suppliers from the energy and adjacent industries. We host topic specific challenges but also welcome innovative solutions on an ad-hoc basis.
