ELA Container Offshore to Support Wind Energy Event in Galveston

Solutions and Opportunities in Germany and the U.S.

ELA Container Offshore GmbH, in cooperation with its US subsidiary and the German American Chamber of Commerce of the Southern U.S., Inc (GACC) have initiated a one-day conference to share ideas about the “Energiewende”. This conference about “Wind Energy – How to power the future” will be held on February 27, 2018 at the Texas A&M in Galveston, TX.

Texas and Lower Saxony are the leading wind energy states in the US and in Germany respectively. Whilst Lower Saxony is planning to expand its offshore wind capacity from around 2,000 MW to 15,000 MW by 2030, in the US projects along the East coast dominate the offshore wind energy sector. However, there is potential in Texas as well, and already in 2005 the Texas Legislature enacted a law requiring Texas to increase the use of renewable energy.

In order to bring together the German and American wind energy sector, and to exchange knowledge, ideas and experiences, this event has been initiated. Next to other speakers, Hans Gatzemeier, Managing Director of ELA Container Offshore GmbH, will talk about “Service on Demand – Perspectives of a Service Provider” to share his experiences on working in the Offshore Wind industry.
