World Forum Offshore Wind (WFO) is a newly-founded non-profit association and one of the world’s first organisations exclusively dedicated to fostering the global growth of offshore wind. It was founded by innogy SE together with eight international companies representing the entire offshore wind value chain, and with the US Business Network for Offshore Wind, which represents over 200 member businesses in the USA.

“Realising the potential of offshore wind is crucial to meeting European and global renewable energy targets. With the World Forum Offshore Wind a platform was founded which helps to support the global expansion.”
Richard Sandford, Director of Offshore Investment & Asset Management at innogy SE
