The UK leads the world for offshore wind, having more installed capacity in its waters than any other country. As we push towards the UK Government’s target of at least 30GW by 2030, the imperative is to ensure that UK businesses lead the global export market for offshore wind manufacturing, technologies and services too. This is where robotics come into the picture…
We convene robotics and renewable energy industry experts to discuss how a heady mix of crawling, climbing and sailing robots, NASA mission planning and global-scale wind operators will achieve this goal.
