Despite Trump backing out of the Paris Climate Agreements, it is reassuring to see the EU continue to progress towards reducing carbon emissions. This report from WindEurope is worth a read. Any insights from this report that you can share with us?
Some things I learned:
- 12.6 GW of offshore wind is currently operating in Europe
- Offshore wind is expected to produce 7% to 11% of the EU’s electricity demand by 2030
- 25% of the EU’s electricity demand could, in theory, be met by offshore wind energy at an average of €54/MWh in the most favourable locations
