Delivering a sustainable low-carbon energy future from offshore renewables
The world urgently needs to decarbonise energy supply, to address the challenges of rising temperatures, rising seas, ocean acidification and the human & geopolitical consequences of delaying our response. 

Fortunately the ocean offers a vast resource of renewable energy potential, with offshore wind currently in the lead, but new possibilities including floating solar, harnessing wind & solar to produce hydrogen by electrolysis of sea water, wave and currents, ocean thermal energy conversion and biomass all offering potential to wean the planet off burning hydrocarbons, which will still be needed for chemical industries, fertilizer and more, but will no longer be the backbone of the energy sector. 

Young people entering our industry today will be the people who deliver the energy transition that the world needs, and have a busy future ahead of them.
