Since the ‘Renewable Energy 3020’ of Korean government to increase renewable energy up to 20% by year 2030, the importance of wind power industry has been gaining its attention more than ever before. Also, the ‘Vision for Saemangeum Renewable Energy’ announced by Jeollabuk-do has made it possible to set a new vision and goal on Korean offshore wind power. In this background, Korea Institute of Materials Science (KIMS) and Korea Wind Energy Association (KWEA) are holding international offshore wind forum hosted by Jeollabuk-do and Gunsan-si.

With the theme of ‘The challenges and implementation plan of Korean offshore wind power to realize the Vision for Saemangeum Renewable Energy’, 2019 International Offshore Wind Forum is intended to share the new vision and goals to encourage Korea's wind industry, as well as to present and discuss technical and business challenges and implementation plan.

Many governmental agencies and various organizations are expected to participate in this event, and it deals with various themes from wind turbine system, rotor blades, sub-structures & installation, operation & maintenance, and win-win local development strategy. The forum must be very meaningful for all participants especially for those from wind power industry and governmental institute.

We look forward to seeing you soon through the forum and send you this letter of invitation to raise your awareness in front of the important challenges of Korean wind industry.
