Energy & Transport Summit IV digital
December 15, 2020
Where energy and transport meet is exceptionally challenging in the wind sector. For companies and organizations involved in wind energy, logistics, transport, and shipping topics are not trivial organizational support functions with routine tasks...
Wind turbines are scaling up to yield more power per installed unit in order to bring down overall cost and make wind energy competitive with other energy forms. As the individual machines yield more output, they also get bigger. And heavier. This makes the transportation challenge and related logistics issues even more pronounced. And the race for bigger output yield is fierce with industry consolidation taking place at all tiers of the value chain.
Lots of indigenous innovation, new ideas, and hard work to achieve economies of scale characterize the energy and transport industries as collaboration intensifies and both industries assume leadership in spearheading the change necessary in terms of logistics, transport, and shipping. This continuous improvement is done to advance the diffusion of wind energy on a global basis. And the wind industry is globalizing fast when it comes to onshore wind and also offshore wind.
Join Energy & Transport Summit IV digital for your "early-holiday-season" view into the engine room of cross-supply chain wind shipping and logistics cooperation in wind energy.

Wind Logistics Group is a cross-value chain collaboration forum where companies and organizations work together to advance logistics, shipping, maritime, offshore, and ports topics for the wind industry. Wind Logistics Group is the successor of the Reference Group of the Global Wind Energy Shipping and Logistics PhD research project of Thomas Poulsen. Transportens InnovationsNetVærk (TINV) and Panticon jointly fund that Thomas Poulsen can continue to be the facilitator of Wind Logistics Group. TINV will become part of Maritime & Logistics Innovation Denmark (MARLOG) on January 1, 2021
Energy Cluster Denmark is the national Danish cluster organization and innovation network for the entire energy sector. Energy Cluster Denmark has 400 members and 80+ projects, where we facilitate innovation projects related to energy production, energy infrastructure, energy storage and energy efficiency, as well as enabling digitalization, system integration and sector coupling within a smart connected energy system.
