SPE Western Australia the GAIA Sustainability Group is pleased to announce the details of our June 2024 GAIA Lunch Time Technical Meeting.

This seminar is about Offshore Wind Energy.  We will have presentations about the global trends and developments in Western Australia; and about the technical, environmental and societal challenges.

Prof Bienen will discuss technical challenges specific to the Australian context along with opportunities from a range of perspectives.
