Offshore Wind Projects Around the World


We publish on a lot of offshore wind farms on CleanTechnica. For new readers (or those of us who need refresher courses), there’s actually an annual report that provides an overview of all the projects around the world. Main(e) International Consulting has released a PDF overview of wind projects from all over, but the report doesn’t include rankings and includes varying degrees of project details.

The report is entirely in English, which comes in handy for those of us not well versed in German or Japanese — languages of countries where offshore wind is actually very popular.

Renewables International points out that “offshore wind power is considerably more expensive than onshore wind (roughly twice as expensive as a rule of thumb), the wind is more constant offshore, so power production is more reliable.” Over time, the goal is to bring down those offshore wind costs enough that the constant, strong winds offshore can compete with exceedingly cheap onshore wind.
