Developing the North Sea Offshore Wind POWER Cluster

 

LillebaeltThis 2nd volume of the POWER cluster project newsletter features information on the Stavanger project kick-off meeting, project partner profiles and where you can meet the POWER cluster project at fairs and conferences.

The POWER cluster project is supported by the North Sea Region (NSR) Interreg IVB Programme. Core project activities include a strengthened stakeholder and business-to-business network leading to knowledge transfer and bringing together complementary expertise to create more innovation in the sector.

Furthermore offshore wind skills training courses will be developed to create benefits for restructuring regions, and the project partners will work to raise the social acceptance for offshore wind energy among the wider public and key stakeholders as a basis for the wider roll-out of the technology.
The POWER cluster partners are glad to keep you updated on offshore wind energy issues in general and POWER cluster activities and output via the project web-site and newsletter.
