Protecting offshore critical infrastructure in a maritime century
September 12 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
With the development of British offshore wind farms – reaching an operating capacity of 13.7 gigawatts in 2022 – many coastal areas have become more important in terms of energy generation. More broadly, critical maritime infrastructure, of which offshore wind farms form part, is growing in strategic prominence. The United Kingdom ought to take the security and well-being of critical maritime infrastructure more seriously, particularly as geopolitics intensifies in the 21st century.
This event, held during London International Shipping Week, will focus on the growing significance of critical maritime infrastructure, as well as the key geopolitical and security risks it faces. Hosted in partnership between the Council on Geostrategy and the Royal Navy’s Strategic Studies Centre, this event will involve interventions from four leading geopolitical strategists and Royal Navy representatives.
