The webinar, hosted by the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and Bureau Veritas, offered a comprehensive overview of the industry landscape. Stephan Ciniselli, Global Director of Offshore Wind at Bureau Veritas, highlighted that offshore wind is a pivotal element of the global energy transition and one of the fastest-growing markets in renewable energy. With an anticipated capacity growth from 65 GW at the end of 2022 to approximately 345 GW by 2030, and potentially reaching 2,000 GW by 2050, offshore wind is poised to revolutionize the energy sector.
Sjoerd Peerlkamp, Director Industrial Cybersecurity (IT/OT Security) at Secura, dives into four topics:
- The Offshore Wind Cyber Threat Landscape
- Upcoming Rules and Regulations regarding Cybersecurity
- How to raise your Cybersecurity Resilience with a structured and risk based approach
- The impact for the Offshore Wind supply chain
Over the past decade, offshore wind has witnessed exponential expansion, and the future looks even more promising. Projections indicate that by 2030, the installed capacity of offshore wind globally will reach a staggering 345 GW. Furthermore, certain countries are expected to rely heavily on offshore wind, with Denmark projected to generate up to 78% of its electricity from offshore wind by 2030.
Recognizing the need for specialized cybersecurity support for offshore wind, the market actively responds to these challenges. Contractual requirements and a demand for expert guidance are emerging to ensure the resilience and security of offshore wind infrastructure.
During the webinar, participants were treated to a high-level introduction, followed by in-depth discussions on the challenges, opportunities, and innovative approaches to cybersecurity in offshore wind.
