Wind Power Projects in Finland

D&I Webinar

The increasing need for sustainable energy solutions continues to drive investments into subsidy-free carbon-neutral energy production in Finland. The first offshore wind projects are now under development within the Finnish territorial waters and Exclusive Economic Zone, creating exciting opportunities for the production of green hydrogen at an industrial scale. As investments are growing larger and becoming more complex, it is important for investors and their financiers to correctly assess the risks involved in the projects and to structure their investments in an optimal way.

In the webinar, current challenges and opportunities in wind power projects and their financings are discussed by market, finance, legal and tax experts followed by Q&A sessions after each presentation.
