Aura secures its reputation as green energy innovators at RenewableUK’s Global Offshore Wind Virtual Festival

Exploring offshore wind’s role in the green economic recovery and energy transition, RenewableUK’s Global Offshore Wind Virtual Festival is the first of its kind, with the three-day event being hosted completely online.

As an event that would usually see hundreds of delegates attend, the Virtual Festival is cutting carbon emissions, with practical and ecological benefits. Eliminating the need to travel, book a hotel and organise catering services, the online event promises to provide a full conference exhibition hall, auditorium and networking experience.

By creating less than 1% of the carbon emissions of its live counterpart, the event is supporting delegates to reduce their carbon footprints as well as providing an opportunity for guests from all over the world to attend.

Aura - Powering partnerships with partners from across the world

Together with key representatives from the Humber Cluster, including The Humber LEP, Team Humber Marine Alliance, East Riding of Yorkshire Council and Grimsby Renewable Partnership, Aura will be one of the many participants exhibiting. Their virtual stand will allow visitors to click through each element to find out more about their world leading research and how Aura provides a platform for ground breaking solutions.

Louise Smith, Director of Aura, said:

“As pioneers in low-carbon innovation, it’s great for us to be part of this virtual event - meeting and hearing from experts from around the world on the latest developments in the offshore wind sector that we can bring back to the Humber.

“The Covid-19 pandemic has been a disruptor for change and it’s assuring to see RenewableUK rising to the challenge by adapting so quickly to put on such a large-scale virtual event. The digital world is creating opportunities for all companies to think differently. Hosting online, these types of events are opening up to the world and Aura can now have the opportunity to bring in partners across the globe, from Taiwan and Korea to Rhode Island in the US.”

The event takes place on 22 - 24 July. Find out more about the event and how to register here:
